THE UCLA DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE (DUI) DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM--SOME LESSONS AND INDICATIONS FOR PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT

An advisory committee was convened in late 1975 to discuss the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) contribution to the alcohol and traffic safety education field. Courses were developed and presented on the UCLA campus. By 1977 the need for an updated and flexible educational technology for use in work with first-time DUI offenders was clear. A preliminary proposal to meet this need was submitted by UCLA Extension to the California Office of Traffic Safety in mid-1977. The California Office of Traffic Safety reviewed this preliminary proposal and from mid-October to mid-December 1977 supported a planning phase for the detailed design of an expanded project to become known as the DUI Demonstration Program. The resulting detailed proposal was favorably reviewed, leading to funding of the DUI Demonstration Program for a three-year period concluding in November 1980. This paper summarizes the activities and experiences of the DUI Demonstration Program during the period of funding.
