THE ALBERTA ROAD SAFETY EXPERIMENT IN CANADA: AN IMPAIRED DRIVERS' PROJECT CONDUCTED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL

A Canadian pilot counselling and referral service was set up for drinking-drivers which so successfully interrupted the chronic offenders' drinking patterns that the number of their court appearances was reduced by 85%. The service was extended to include programming for a selected number of covicted impaired drivers with most gratifying results. In accordance with the court the impaired driver attends a course of 4 lectures. Specific project procedure is outlined including personal questionnaires on "History of Events Leading to the Impaired Arrest" and "Alcoholism Assessment Questionnaire." At course conclusion, followups on these forms might include referrals to other clinics or merit consideration. Followup procedure includes review of all project components and course evaluation. Evaluation results and course content outline are included. (MW)
