AN ANALYSIS OF PUBLIC INFORMATION AND EDUCATION ACTIVITY, SECTION TWO, ANALYTIC STUDY VII

The study describes and evaluates public information and education activities of the Phoenix ASAP. Operational between 1972-1976, the ASAP was one of 35 Federally-funded projects aimed at reducing alcohol-related traffic crashes. PI&E objectives included creating awareness and concern for the drunk driving problem among the general public; generating the support of community groups for ASAP countermeasures; fostering responsible attitudes toward driving after drinking; and persuading persons to intervene in potential DWI situations to prevent the behavior. Evaluation of PI&E activities was accomplished primarily through surveys of the general public and specific target groups. These polls, conducted in person and by telephone, provided information for program planning and were used as a measure of PI&E effectiveness. The report summarizes the methodology and results of eight different survey studies.
