NEW ORLEANS ALCOHOL SAFETY ACTION PROJECT. SECTION III, ANALYTICAL STUDY NUMBER 1. TOTAL PROJECT IMPACT

The New Orleans Safety Action Project had as its goal, the reduction of alcohol related traffic accidents. It proposed to reach this goal by means of a threefold thrust. First was the detection and apprehension of drunken drivers. Second, was informed judicial processing including the identification and subsequent re-education and treatment of problem drinkers and third, was the changing of attitudes and behavior through extensive informational and educational media campaigns. This analytical study analyzes the impact of the overall ASAP effort on the accident picture in New Orleans. A multiple regression analysis of accident data using interrupts for ASAP and other significant events in the New Orleans area shows that ASAP had no impact on traffic accidents.
