ON THE APPLICABILITY OF COST-EFFECTIVE ANALYSES TO ALCOHOL-HIGHWAY SAFETY COUNTERMEASURE PROGRAMS

Consideration is given to the application of cost-effectiveness procedures as one means of determining the most productive mix of alcohol-highway safety countermeasures. Key problems in developing and utilitizing valid cost-effectiveness procedures in this realm are discussed. Alternative types of approaches are considered; namely, the simplistic 'rule-of-thumb' approach and the sophisticated model-building approach. A third approach is discussed, involving the phased development of an operational cost-effectiveness analytic procedure.
