KANSAS CITY ASAP (ALCOHOL SAFETY ACTION PROJECT). SECTION I. ANALYTIC STUDY 1: AN ANALYSIS OF PROJECT IMPACT ON ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE MEASURES
The 5-year, $3.2 million project was successful in meeting its goal and most of its subsidiary objectives. Alcohol-related crashes were significantly reduced in Kansas City, Missouri, especially during the first 4 years. Arrests more than doubled, conviction rates improved, an effective screening, identification, and referral process was implemented, and new legislation was obtained. Drunk driving in Kansas City declined greatly. Overall, the project yielded societal benefits of about $3 for each dollar spent. The major failings were the inability of the evaluation to show more than a marginal gain in rehabilitation program effectiveness over the more traditional punitive sanctions, and an inability to generate and maintain public awareness of the problems and support for the program.
