LOS ANGELES CITY FREEWAY ACCIDENT REDUCTION PROGRAM. FINAL REPORT AND EVALUATION

The objective of this project was as follows: To hold the total number of reportable accidents to 71 during April 1 through July 5, 1977. The 71 accidents are equal to the number of accidents that occurred during the same period the previous year. A Southern Division program objective was to measure any change occurring in DWI/PCF reportable accidents as compared to projected 1977 accidents for the same period and beats. The Drunk Accident Reduction Team effort did not hold reportable accidents at the 1976 level; 91 reportable accidents occurred during the program period-April 1 through July 5, 1977-compared to 71 for 1976. For the same period there were 24 DWI/PCF reportable accidents compared to the 29 projected, a decrease of 5. The results of this project do not suggest any recommended policy changes regarding increased enforcement in terms of the program objective of holding reportable accidents to the 1976 level. However, they do reinforce the idea of an increased work power resulting in increased arrests.
