THE FINDINGS OF THE COMPREHENSIVE DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL OFFENDER TREATMENT DEMONSTRATION PROJECT

The use of education and rehabilitation programs as court-imposed sanctions has increased steadily since the early 1970s. In some jurisdictions these programs are used in lieu of traditional punitive sanctions such as jail, fine, and license suspension. In response to the popularity of education and rehabilitation programs, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has made major efforts to objectively evaluate the traffic safety effectiveness of these sentencing alternatives.
