EDUCATION AND THERAPY PROGRAMS FOR DRUNK DRIVERS; THEY WORK!

Project CRASH (Countermeasures Related to Alcohol Safety on the Highways) originated in 1970 when Vermont was selected as one of the first nine demonstration projects under the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Alcohol Safety Action Programs (ASAP). Project CRASH completed its demonstration and evaluation effort in 1976 but did not end its operation. Due to a significant change in Vermont's DWI laws in 1973, the education and rehabilitation countermeasures became self-financed and have continued since they came into operation in 1971. The enforcement effort continued under highway safety 402 funds. Today Project CRASH operates in four major areas. This paper discusses one of these areas--Operating the Education and Rehabilitation Programs for Drunk Drivers.
