ROADSIDE SURVEY ANALYSIS: 1972-1973

The major purpose of the 1973 ASAP roadside survey was to evaluate the effectiveness of this program by obtaining data which could be compared to that gathered in the 1972 baseline study. The reader should be aware that other measures of effectiveness of this program exist but are not being treated in this report. A secondary purpose for this roadside survey was to refine the profile of the drinking driver which was initially developed following the 1972 baseline study. An accurate profile of this individual would be useful in both law enforcement and in rehabilitation efforts. Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is the variable obtained for each driver in the two surveys, 1972 baseline and 1973 roadside, which provides the most information related to the stated purpose. For this reason, primary interest will center on this variable and its relationships to the other data given by the respondents.
