Overall project activities during the 2-year continuation period of the San Antonio Alcohol Safety Action Project included the design and conduct of a number of selective patrol strategies, support and improvement of the DWI adjudication system, the design and conduct of experiments to evaluate the effectiveness of various rehabilitation modalities, and further experimentation in public information and education. A description of these activities and an evaluation of the overall impact of ASAP efforts in San Antonio and Bexar County are presented in this document. The Overall Project Impact Abstract at the beginning of this report summarizes the major findings of the program during the 1975-1976 continuation period. Section I presents the evaluation objectives and research questions which formed the basis for the research conducted during the continuation period, with findings of the initial 3 years and highlights of the continuation period contained in Section II. Results of the Evaluation, Section III, summarizes the statistical and administrative evaluation of the program and provides information on accident trends, alcohol involvement, compounding factors, and the self-sustaining DWI control system resulting from the 5-year ASAP effort. Section IV, Conclusions and Recommendations, presents an overall summary of the findings of the evaluation and identifies those findings which could be of greatest benefit to the initiation and operation of locally-funded ASAP's.
