The report indicates that development of an on-line National Driver Register (NDR) system is technically feasible; the principal missing element is the telecommunications network. Use of either a government operated network or a commercial facility are logical network solutions within policy and privacy constraints. Refinement of cost data is scheduled during Phase II effort, at which time a specific recommendation would be made. The avoidance of 7 traffic fatalities through NDR action would offset cost of the present system by avoiding the societal costs of these fatalities. An increase of 1% in positive NDR responses would more than double the potential for removing problem drivers from the road. The 16-state on-line system with other States continuing batch/mail would cost only 28% more than the present system in current dollars.
