What does it mean 'take on' as in 'What is the popular take on drinking and driving in your country?
You need to see it as a whole phrase. The "take on something" - it's not "take on + something" it's "the take + on + something".
Me: Now that you have seen all the evidence, what's your take on extraterrestrial life?
Friend: Well, I think it's possible but until aliens start visiting Earth, I won't be completely convinced.
My friend's "take" is his/her opinion.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
"What's your take on X?"
"What's your opinion about X?"
"How does X strike you?"
"How do you view X?"
