The 1968 legislative enactment of the New York State Law which became Article 21 of the Vehicle and Traffic Law authorizes the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles to establish experimental driver rehabilitation programs for licensees subject to license suspension or revocation. Article 21 also created a Driver Rehabilitation Advisory Board to advise the Commissioner in his planning deliberations. Initially, programs recommended by the Board and authorized by the Commissioner were established in New York City and Monroe County in 1970. A Nassau County "Alcohol Countermeasure Program", administered by the Nassau County Traffic Safety Board and restricted to alcohol related convictions, was approved in 1971. A "DWI Counterattack" program, also concerned only with alcohol related convictions, was instituted in Erie, Onondaga and Westchester counties in 1971 as a joint effort of the Department of Motor Vehicles and the New York State Automobile Association. A Suffolk County DWI Rehabilitation Program became operational in May, 1973. This publication reports the findings from these experimental efforts.
