Abstract

The aim of this article is to examine the degree to which drivers participate in activities aimed at avoiding drunk-driving victimisation, and to assess protective behaviour in relation to drunk driving. The sample included 100 black and 100 white drivers drawn from the general public of an urban area in the then Northern Province of South Africa. 59% reported having practised three out of four self-protective behaviours and 68% having practised all four other-protective behaviours in the preceding twelve months. Some evidence was found to support the fear-and-victimisation model, since one or more individual factors were related to each of the four self-protective behaviours and three of the four other-protective behaviours. Important gender and racial differences were also found.

Die doel van hierdie artikel is om die mate waarin bestuurders deelneem aan gedrag om viktimisasie weens dronkbestuur te vermy, na te vors en om gedrag wat fokus op beskerming teen dronkbestuur te meet. Die proefgroep het bestaan uit 100 swart en 100 wit motorbestuurders, getrek uit die algemene publiek in 'n stedelike gebied in die destydse Noordelike Provinsie, Suid-Afrika. Die resultate dui daarop dat 59% van dié persone aan drie van die vier moontlike voorkomende, selfbeskermende optredes deelgeneem het, terwyl 68% al vier ander-beskermende optredes geopenbaar het in die loop van die afgelope twaalf maande. Daar is ook bevind dat die vrees-vir-viktimisasiemodel bevestig is. Die bevinding berus daarop dat daar 'n verband vasgestel is tussen een of meer persoonlike faktore en elkeen van die vier selfbeskermende optredes asook met drie van die vier ander-beskermende optredes. Belangrike geslags- en rasseverskille in hierdie verband is waargeneem.
