The study intends to investigate an almost unexplored side of the drink and drive problem: the motivational factors of the intention to perform a risky behavior such as getting into a car with a drunk friend. According to literature, our findings seem to confirm that social pressures influence the tendency in undervalue risks: the importance of peer norms in determining young adults intentions to get into a car with a drunk driver emerge as a crucial determinant. Risk perception and self-esteem also seem to be important variables to consider in interventions to prevent the behavior.
