In 1974, the Los Angeles county Alcohol Safety Action Project conducted a survey of Los Angeles county attorneys and physicians in order to determine how aware the professionals were of the drinking and driving problem in this county. Due to the result of this survey, a print ad and a direct mail campaign was developed in an effort to change attitudes and increase awareness on the part of these professionals. After the ad/mail campaign, another survey was conducted to determine if there was an increase in awareness of the problem or changes in attitudes toward intervention in a driving under the influence (DUI) situation. Findings of the Professional Surveys showed that both attorneys and physicians are very aware of the dangers associated with alcohol abuse. Attorneys show a greater degree of reluctance to act as the 'significant other' than the physician.
