AN EVALUATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF SANCTIONS FOR DWI IN PREVENTING RECIDIVISM IN NORTH CAROLINA

The objective of this project was to evaluate many of the programs and countermeasures designed to prevent DWI recidivism and examine more closely some potential problems with the current law. Specifically, this evaluation focuses on many of the sanctions levied against those who are convicted of a DWI. It is one of the first studies to examine a variety of sanctions to determine which of them, alone, or in combination with others, is most effective in preventing further DWI recidivism.
