REVIEW OF STATE AND COMMUNITY HIGHWAY ALCOHOL SAFETY PROJECTS: A STUDY OF THE STIMULUS EFFECT OF NHTSA ALCOHOL SAFETY PROGRAMS. VOLUME II

The objectives of the study were to determine the impact of the ASAP and other Federal alcohol safety programs on state and community highway alcohol safety projects, to devise a project classification system, and to gather information helpful in providing guidance to projects. Self-administered questionnaires were returned by a sample of state Governor's Offices and Project Directors throughout the country. Findings show that the ASAP program stimulates the success of projects and activities directed at the drinking and driving problem. Factors important for project effectiveness include; Prior ASAP experience of staff; coordination of each countermeasure area; referral of DWI offenders to educational and treatment courses; use of mass media for PI&E; selective enforcement efforts and special patrols; certified operators on duty 24 hours a day all year; judicial seminars; recommendation to judges regarding treatment; identification and utilization of local resources; a year's probation for convicted DWIs; evaluation after treatment; the use of Advisory Committees.
