EVALUATION AND SYSTEM DESCRIPTION OF ASAP JUDICIAL SYSTEMS. VOLUME II: PUERTO RICO CASE STUDY

The objective of the Puerto Rico ASAP study was to assess the impact of (1) the statutory adoption of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's operational definition of a problem drinker as the legal definition for court disposition purposes and (2) a mandated presentence investigation and drinker-type classification of all convicted drinking-driving offenders. The study found that the Puerto Rico ASAP successfully created, implemented, and tested a viable system of drinking-driver control through legislative enactment in 1973, where no such system had previously existed.
