MALTA, Deborah Carvalho et al. Mortality analysis of traffic accidents before and after Brazil's Dry Law, from 2007 to 2009. Epidemiol. Serv. Saúde [online]. 2010, vol.19, n.4, pp.317-328. ISSN 1679-4974.

OBJECTIVE: to compare the risk of death due to road traffic accidents (RTA) before and after the implementation of Law Number 11,705 (Dry Law) that restricts the consumption of alcoholic beverages in Brazil. METHODOLOGY: data from the Mortality Information System (SIM), from 2007 to 2009, were evaluated. The standardized RTA death rate variations and their respective confidence intervals of 95% were evaluated in the period from July 2007 to June 2008 (before the Dry Law) and from July 2008 to June 2009 (after the implementation of the Dry Law). RESULTS: a significant proportional reduction in RTA death rates was observed, ranging from 7.4% for Brazil to 11.8% for state capitals, especially among men (-8.3% and -12.6%, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: the continuous maintenance and increase in surveillance and traffic education activities along with the development of analytical studies to better evaluate the impact of such restrictive measures are recommended.
