This report describes an experiment carried out in the towns of Potchefstroom, Witbank and Rustenburg, to determine the effect of publicity on the one hand, and streamline law enforcement procedures on the other, on the level of alcohol law enforcement. Roadside surveys to monitor the experiment were carried out on a weekly basis during a twenty week period. Motorists were breath-tested for alcohol content. The results were tabulated and evaluation of the differentiated measures was done by means of telephone interviews in the different places. Results of the roadside surveys show that the highest proportion of both alcohol offenders and drivers with positive BAC levels was found in Witbank. Evaluation of the questionnaire results indicates the greater effect publicity-wise of streamlined law enforcement procedures, when compared to publicity. (TRRL)
