STUDY OF SELF TEST DEVICES
The study was conducted to determine whether individuals might change their drinking driving behavior if they are informed of their intoxication level and its implications relative to accident involvement and legal consequences. Individuals at public and private drinking situations voluntarily participated in breath testing and presentation of related information prior to departing from those situations. Findings disclosed that participants were no more likely to avoid driving under the influence of alcohol than were individuals not exposed to the breath test/presentation. Neither was there evidence that participants moderated their drinking on subsequent occasions.
