A multidisciplinary investigation of all vehicle accidents from which a fatality occurred within 24 hours in two different cities with comparable population composition was conducted. One of the cities had an active Alcohol Safety Action Program (ASAP) while the other did not. The two cities chosen were Tulsa, Oklahoma and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. It was concluded that although there was no difference between the two cities in total percentage of alcohol-related fatal accidents there were enough other indicators to conclude that the ASAP program was having a direct beneficial effect. Additional recommendations call for an increased data base, the development of mechanisms to detect nonvisible defects in the driving public.
