This issue of Traffic Safety Evaluation Research Review focuses on driver improvement programs. Program studies are summarized and the subject of driver improvement programs as a major countermeasure activity is reviewed. The driver improvement program addresses the poor driver record problem and is intended to accomplish the following: promptly identify drivers whose performance falls below the acceptable level; provide programs to enable improvement of this performance; and deny licensure to those unable to meet minimum safe driving standards. A variety of countermeasures have been applied for the purpose of correcting negligent driving. The effectiveness of such countermeasures is measured by their ability to reduce violation and/or accident involvement. A number of effectiveness evaluation studies have been conducted. The results of such studies in Colorado, Illinois, North Carolina, Oregon and Washington are summarized.
