DAYTIME ROADSIDE SURVEY: A DESCRIPTION OF DAYTIME DRIVING AND DRINKING PATTERNS

Some data indicated importance of studying patterns of drinking and driving during the afternoon hours. A Roadside Survey was conducted between June 2 and June 8, 1976. During the hours of 12:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., drivers were sampled at 14 locations throughout the ASAP jurisdiction. Five hundred and five (505) drivers participated. Only 31 were found to have positive BACs. No evidence supported the hypothesis that more women were drinking and driving during the daytime. Demographic variables, levels of knowledge about drinking and driving and reports of occurrence of drinking driving situations corresponded closely to previous nighttime surveys in the area.
