BALTIMORE ALCOHOL SAFETY ACTION PROJECT. SECTION II. VOLUME 7A. EVALUATION OF THE ALCOHOL USE AND TRAFFIC SAFETY CURRICULUM (K-12)

ASAP projects around the country have implemented a variety of countermeasures, each designed to directly or indirectly reduce the number of alcohol related automobile crashes and fatalities resulting therefrom. Most of these countermeasures were designed to have an immediate impact. It was recognized however that a long-range solution to the drinking/driving problem might more effectively be achieved by the development of educational programs which could be incorporated into the public school system. To accomplish this long-range goal, the Department of Transportation, as part of the Baltimore ASAP Project, has supported the development of an Alcohol Use and Traffic Safety Curriculum. This curriculum development effort had three objectives: (1) To develop a curriculum and related resource materials at four levels of instruction, K-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12. The curriculum was to be designed to increase student's knowledge of, and establish positive modes of behavior and attitudes concerning the use of alcohol, particularly as that use related to traffic safety; (2) To develop a training program for Maryland Alcohol Safety Action teachers so that they could successfully present the curriculum; (3) To implement the Alcohol Highway Safety Curriculum within existing K-12 curricula in the Maryland Alcohol Safety Action Project area.
