The basic purpose of the Vermont Symposium was publication of the proceedings to incorporate the following specific aims: (1) Systematic, evaluative reviews of the eight major aspects of alcohol and drug problems related to highway safety, with each review written by a leading specialist in that aspect; (2) a synthesis of the edited transcriptions of the discussion periods that followed presentation of the summaries of each of the eight review papers; and (3) ratings of 176 key-word topics on three dimensions of alcohol, drug, and driving problems, i.e., the extent of present knowledge, the relative priorities for basic research in terms of informational yield, and the relative priorities for applied research in highway safety. The critical reviews consist of combinations of the following topics: Alcohol and/or drug influences upon driving-related behavior as studied in laboratory, simulator, and closed-course driving experiments; epidemiologic studies of the role of alcohol and/or drugs in highway crashes and citations; and research on countermeasures for alcohol and/or drug involved problems on the highway.
