A major problem currently confronting law enforcement agencies is the assessment of the effectiveness of various driver improvement activities. The objectives of this research were to evaluate the effect of the Texas Department of Public Safety driver improvement training program on driving record and to develop a technique for predicting reduction in accident and violation frequencies for the 12-month period following training. The results of this study indicated that the training program has a significant effect on accident and violation frequencies for selected groups. It was also found that it is possible to construct an equation that will predict with some accuracy, reduction in the number of accidents and violations for a 12-month period following training. /Author/
