IMPLEMENTING IMPAIRED DRIVING COUNTERMEASURES: PUTTING RESEARCH INTO ACTION, A SYMPOSIUM, AUGUST 21-23, 2003, IRVINE, CALIFORNIA. FOREWORD

The past few years have seen a disturbing reversal in the progress in preventing impaired driving crashes in the United States. This has occurred despite an ever-growing body of knowledge about what works. In response to this situation, the Alcohol, Other Drugs, and Transportation Committee of the Transportation Research Board held a symposium to discuss the implementation of research-based strategies and the challenges such implementation often faces. This foreword to the proceedings of the symposium discusses the background and structure of the workshop and presents an overview of the discussions. Also included is a brief summary of some of the ideas on implementation of countermeasures that were presented by the key participant groups which included legislators, law enforcement officers, judges, advocates, and physicians.
