AN INITIAL EVALUATION OF THE NORTH CAROLINA ALCOHOL AND DRUG EDUCATION TRAFFIC SCHOOLS VOLUME I--TECHNICAL REPORT

With the 1979 passage of Senate Bill 691, North Carolina adopted a statewide program of Alcohol and Drug Education Traffic Schools (ADETS) for first time convictees of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and Careless and Reckless Driving after Drinking. The program went into effect January 1, 1980. This is the report of an initial overall evaluation of the program conducted by the UNC Highway Safety Research Center under contract to the N.C. Department of Human Resources. The scope of the evaluation activity included reviewing the program coordination activities handled at the state level and attending one of the ADETS courses in order to describe the process, analyzing knowledge tests taken by ADETS students to assess knowledge gain as a result of attending the schools, surveying various ADETS users groups to determine their perceptions of the program, querying neighboring states as to their practices in regards to ADETS type programs and analyzing DUI arrest/conviction data and accident data to assess the potential deterrent effects that may be realized as a result of attending the course.
