PROJECT IMPACT ON ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE MEASURES. ANALYTIC STUDY NUMBER ONE. UTAH ALCOHOL SAFETY ACTION PROJECT (ASAP)

It is estimated that the number of DUI arrests tripled during 1972-75 in the Utah ASAP area, and that convictions almost doubled. The ASAP introduced a methodial effort to identify problem drinking drivers. During ASAP operation, more than half of those convicted for DUI were referred for background investigation, and about 95% of the recommendations were followed by the courts. There was a significant decrease in injury and fatal crashes during ASAP operation; however, the effect of ASAP in this reduction is confounded with all highway safety efforts, the gasoline shortage, and the 55 mile per hour speed limit.
