The summary is intended to illustrate the history of the New Orleans Alcohol Safety Action Project (ASAP) which began operation in January 1972 and terminated (under federal funding) operation in December 1976. This project was designed to solve, or considerably improve, the drunk driving problem. This was achieved through a series of countermeasures in the areas of Enforcement, Rehabilitation, Judicial and Public Information and Education. The major emphasis of the project was placed on the arrest, prosecution, conviction and rehabilitation of the problem drinker who drives and the education of the social drinker who drives as to how alcohol affects driving ability. It will also point out the project's impact on other agencies and area, as well as plans for continued operation following the termination of federal funding.
