A SYSTEMS APPROACH TO THE ANALYSIS OF THE DRINKING DRIVER CONTROL SYSTEM-VOL 3 (STATUTORY, COMMON, AND ADMINISTRATIVE LAW)

STATUTORY, COMMON, AND ADMINISTRATIVE LAW AFFECTING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE PERSON WHO DRIVES WHILE INTOXICATED (DWI) AND THE TRAFFIC LAW SYSTEM ARE INVESTIGATED. THE DISCUSSION ATTEMPTS TO BLEND "LAW AND REAL-WORLD" SITUATIONS WITH EMPHASIS LESS ON THEORY THAN ON THE EFFORTS OF THE TRAFFIC LAW SYSTEM TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF HIGHWAY DEATHS CAUSED BY DRINKING DRIVERS. THE STUDY USES THREE INTERRELATED APPROACHES TO PROVIDE A FRAMEWORK. FIRST, IT FOLLOWS THE CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER OF EVENTS AS THE DWI INTERACTS WITH THE TRAFFIC LAW SYSTEM. SECOND, IT IDENTIFIES ISSUES WITHIN THIS INTERACTION ACCORDING TO THE NEEDS OF THOSE IMPLEMENTING COUNTERMEASURES PROGRAMS. THIRD, IT USES THE TECHNIQUE OF A LEGAL MEMORANDUM, WHEN RELEVANT, ANALYZING EACH COMPONENT OF THE REAL-WORLD SITUATION ACCORDING TO THE LEGAL ISSUES INVOLVED. /AUTHOR/
