STRATEGY 6 – Change Physical Design

Changing the physical design or structure of problem environments to reduce risk and change local conditions (e.g., signage, lighting, outlet density, installation of new technology in automobiles).


  • High-visibility sobriety checkpoints
  • Use local zoning authority to limit density of licensed alcohol establishments

Coalitions can also consider activities such as:

  • Providing signage (placards, coasters, etc.) reminding servers and patrons about laws and house policies prohibiting sales to intoxicated patrons
