SUMMARY OF ASAP RESULTS FOR APPLICATION TO STATE AND LOCAL PROGRAMS. VOLUME III. TRAINING GUIDE INSTRUCTOR'S MANUAL

Deaths and injuries on the highway, even though America's accident rate is the lowest in the world, remain the nation's highest cause of unnecessary fatalities, and a good half of those losses are related to the drinking driver. In its attempt to reduce the toll, the United States is turning from solely technological actions to complex social research aimed at controlling the human factors in the drinking driving problem. The largest attempt has been the Alcohol Safety Action Program of the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration started in 1970 and still continuing. This research was an analysis of the first 3.5 years of that program. Volume III translates the findings and costs analysis into a training guide suitable for conduct of regional and/or local seminars for cognizant officials of state, county, and city government. Analyzes the significance of ASAP, and discusses in the field of highway safety. Analyses the costs of conducting an Alcohol Safety Action Project in a local community or a state.
