The manual embodies a total multidisciplinary approach to the problem of controlling the drinking driver. It is the intent of this manual to make a contribution to the initiation and development of alcohol enforcement countermeasures. The problems are approached in two ways--one in terms of the problem drinker in society and the other in terms of what can be done to encounter the problems which he causes on the highways. The manual discusses the dimensions, challenges, problems and elements of the problem drinking-driver contact with a full explanation of alcohol and alcoholism. A review of the research on the relationships of alcohol abuse to highway safety and the general nature of the problems encountered by the police in the enforcement of drinking driver laws are discussed in detail. The final part of the manual discusses the relationships between police and other groups in the law enforcement of alcohol safety.
