LEGAL ASPECTS OF ALCOHOL AND DRUG INVOLVEMENT IN HIGHWAY SAFETY-ALCOHOL COUNTERMEASURES LITERATURE REVIEW

The authors have included not only legal literature but information published in scientific and other non-legal journals having some relevance to legal issues. The literature has been treated in the following categories: (1) Alcohol ingestion and driver performance: experimental studies; (2) alcohol ingestion and driver performance: field studies; (3) measurement of BAC's and drug concentrations; (4) identification of problem drinking drivers; (5) evaluation of countermeasures; (6) legal and constitutional issues in anti-drinking, driver enforcement, adjudication and sentencing. Although this review includes both alcohol and drug related publications, very few publications concerning legal aspects of drugs were available. In addition to extensive references, the authors have provided a bibliography.
