NEGLIGENT-OPERATOR TREATMENT EVALUATION SYSTEM: PROGRAM EFFECTIVENESS REPORT NUMBER 4 (DETAILED FINDINGS)

The Negligent-Operator Treatment Evaluation System provides annual cost-effectiveness analyses of the California Department of Motor Vehicles' Negligent-Operator (Neg-Op) program. The evaluation system is based on a comparison of the driving records of Neg-Ops who are randomly assigned to a treatment or a no-contact group. Three levels of progressively more severe Neg-Op treatments were evaluated in this manner; the fourth-level treatment was evaluated indirectly using data from level-3 recidivist. Drivers at each level were eligible to receive a standard treatment or an alcohol tailored treatment. When the results of warning letters and notices of intent (levels 1 and 2) were combined they revealed a statistically significant reduction in total accidents. The regular probation hearing (level 3) was the only treatment which produced a statistically significant reduction in total accidents when analyzed by itself.
