THE VISUAL DETECTION OF DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED. FIELD TEST OF VISUAL CUES AND DETECTION METHODS

A Drunk Driver Detection Guide was developed and tested at a sample of 10 law enforcement agencies at locations throughout the United States. The test was designed to provide both longitudinal and cross-sectional analyses of several measures likely to reflect the impact and utility of using the Guide, and to verify the values contained in the Guide. The DWI experienced police officers who used the Guide expressed doubts about its value in improving their own DWI enforcement ability. However, they considered the Guide to be valuable for increasing patrol sensitivity to important cues, training new patrol officers, preparing DWI arrest reports, and supporting court testimony.
