Message from the Guest Editors
It is important to recognize that high levels of community education, enforcement, and penalties have led to major improvements in road safety. However, a serious problem that remains is the representation of drink driving as a contributing factor in more than one-quarter of fatal crashes. An important response has been increasing attention to developing and evaluating rehabilitation
programs to reduce offender recidivism. At least three initiatives over the last decade deserve examination by the international public health community. These are programs linked with mandatory alcohol-ignition interlocks, interactive internet-based interventions particularly addressing attendance challenges, and increased attention to programs targeting first offenders to
prevent recidivism. This special Issue calls for the submission of papers on this issue to enable broad interchange from different countries and models to inform ongoing evaluation and progress in this important public health field.

Message from the Editor-in-Chief
Addressing the environmental and public health challenges requires engagement and collaboration among clinicians and public health researchers. Discovery and advances in this research field play a critical role in providing a scientific basis for decision-making toward control and prevention of human diseases, especially the illnesses that are induced from environmental exposure to
health hazards. IJERPH provides a forum for discussion of discoveries and knowledge in these multidisciplinary fields. Please consider publishing your research in this high quality, peer-reviewed, open access journal.
