ADMINISTRATIVE PER SE. PUBLIC POLICY IMPACT EVALUATION USING INTERRUPTED TIME-SERIES ANALYSIS. DISSERTATION
Traditionally, legislators and the judiciary have approached the drunk driving issue on a criminal basis, as reflected in state statutes. Recently, however, several states including Oklahoma have broken with the traditional approach and have adopted an administrative intervention procedure. Such 'administrative per se' laws are designed to decrease drunk driving by increasing the certainty, severity and celerity of punishment. It is important to note that adoption of administrative per se marks a significant shift in power away from the courts and into the hands of an administrative agency. A major objective of this dissertation involves examining and analyzing the deterrent effect of legal policy (administrative per se) on drunk driving, as related to alcohol involved traffic fatalities.
