SAFETY PRIORITIES OF THE FUTURE-DRIVER CONTROL PROGRAM
Three driver improvement programs of the federal government are discussed. Top priority has been given to the Alcohol Countermeasures Program. Presently, 35 federally-funded Alcohol Action Projects designed to find effective and lasting cures to the drunk driver problem, are in operation throughout the country. The Driver Control Program still in its formative stage, will encompass: the driver licensing and relicensing processes; driver improvement including rehabilitation and retraining; administrative system of driver referrals; administrative adjucation of traffic law violations; and various types of enforcement actions. This program seeks to restructure driver behavioral patterns. The third driver improvement program is STEP-Selective Traffic Enforcement Programs, a model project to demonstrate traffic enforcement countermeasures that will result in accident reductions and identify the kind of enforcement action needed to have a meaningful impact on accident statistics.
