POST-ASAP (ALCOHOL SAFETY ACTION PROJECT) PROGRESS REPORT (FINAL). PUERTO RICO ALCOHOL SAFETY ACTION PROJECT

The report provides information pertaining to ASAP generated activities during the period June 1975 - December 1976. During this period, Federal funding (Section 403) for operational countermeasures had terminated. Progress for the following areas are described: Enforcement (Special Alcohol Patrol Units, Special Alcohol Pedestrian Patrol Units, Breath Analysis, and Video Tape Evidence Collection); Legislative, Judicial and Assistance to Prosecutors; Pre-Sentence Investigation and Probation; Rehabilitation Services; Public Information and Education, and the Alcohol Advisory Committee. Although the ASAP period did not produce the expected results, the post-ASAP period progress is considered successful. With the exception of the Rehabilitation Countermeasure, the much needed services for the drinking driver are continuing. For the first time, there exists in Puerto Rico a genuine concern as to what happens to those that drink and drive. It can be assumed then that if only for this reason the ASAP was successful in Puerto Rico.
