The author has reviewed and reported on those United States publications in which a significant portion touches upon legal matters or upon materials of direct bearing upon legislative policy, administration of justice, or law enforcement. Major reference works for the review period include the second edition of the American Medical Associations' Alcohol and the Impaired DRiver; a pocket supplement to the second edition of Robert L. Donigan's Chemical Tests and the Law; and, the 1973 supplement to R.E. Erwin's et al., Defense of Drunk Driving Cases--Criminal--Civil. The review deals with general policy recommendations developed by major writers such as H. Lawrence Ross, Robert F. Borkenstein, and Arthur J. McBay; administration of justice, including sanctions designed to deter the drinking driver; implications for law and law enforcement from Alcohol Safety Action Projects and related activities; roadside screening tests; implied consent laws; and, legislation and legislative proposals at state and national levels. /HSRI/
