PROJECT IMPACT ON ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE MEASURES. ANALYTIC STUDY NUMBER ONE. UTAH ALCOHOL SAFETY ACTION PROJECT (ASAP)
The Utah ASAP significantly reduced the number of injury crashes occurring during high incidence time periods. It is found that alcohol related fatal crashes decreases at the end of ASAP operation; this is probably due to decreased reporting emphasis. No other categories of crashes changed due to ASAP operation. DUI arrests and convictions have significantly decreased in the ASAP area since the end of ASAP operation, and are presently at pre-project levels. The energy crisis, 55 mile per hour speed limit, etc., significantly reduced fatal and injury crashes in the ASAP area during ASAP operation.
