INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON RESEARCH METHODOLOGY FOR ROADSIDE SURVEYS OF DRINKING-DRIVING-ALCOHOL COUNTERMEASURES WORKSHOP

The basic purpose of the Paris Conference was to encourage more roadside surveys by furthering the research methodology and recommendations for conducting roadside surveys developed by a special group of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. This conference was intended to produce as high a degree of standardization of statistics as possible commensurate with the legal, demographic, cultural, geographic and methodological variety between nations. The basis for such standardization was developed in the London, ottawa and Paris OECD Conferences. The conference reviewed classical and recent roadside surveys, their methodology and a demonstration of survey techniques. A special manual for roadside surveys was developed, as well as interests in the drinking-driving problem and the need to develop countermeasures. The Conference agreed on six points all centering around the conception of individual countries standardizing roadside survey research methodlogy for international comprison of data. Delegates reaffirmed the recommendations from the First International Conference on Driver Behavior, Zurich 1973, related to the involvement of alcoholic drivers in traffic crash morbidity and mortality. /SRIS/
