The impact of Decree 100 on the drinking and drunk-driving behavior in Ho Chi Minh City
Student: Đặng Cửu Trinh, VNP 24
Supervisor: Dr. Võ Tất Thắng
The study aims to investigate the impact of the new BAC limits law on the frequency of drinking and drunk-driving in Ho Chi Minh City. The new level of BAC is the main content of the new decree, called shortly Decree 100. The government issued Decree 100 with an expectation that it will reduce the negative behavior after alcohol drinking, especially drunk-driving behavior. The study uses the difference-in-difference approach to estimate the primary data collected from the online survey. The study finds that Decree 100 positively impacts the monthly average number of driving after drinking. The significant magnitude of the effect varies from -0.623 to -0.642. These values imply that Decree 100 is associated with a 0.623 to 0.642 reduction in the monthly average number of drunk-driving. However, the relationship between Decree 100 and the monthly average number of drinking is not statistically significant.
