ANALYTICAL STUDY NO. 4: AN ANALYSIS OF THE IMPACT OF ASAP ON THE TRAFFIC SAFETY SYSTEM

The report is an analysis of the full three operational years of the Idaho Alcohol Safety Action Project (ASAP). This is the fourth in a series of annual analytic studies which are written in an effort to determine the effects of the project in Idaho. The first series of studies dealt with only six months of operational data collected during the start-up period. The present series of studies will primarily analyze the data collected during 1973, 1974 and 1975. Data previous to 1973 is mainly indicative of the drinker-driver situation before the ASAP began impacting the community towards the close of 1972. The Idaho ASAP began in June of 1972 and was in full operation by September of 1972. Twelve countermeasures were utilized in the design of the project: Project management, Enforcement, Judicial and prosecution assistance, Expert witness/chemical laboratory, Education/re-education, Rehabilitation, Driver testing, licensing and regulation, Public information and education, Legislative and regulatory, Medical advisory board, Alcohol data bank, and Information services. This study 4 deals with the flow of arrested DWI offenders through the traffic safety system. Section 1 presents a brief introduction and a description of the ASAP community. The procedures for disposition of alcohol-related traffic arrests are described in Section 2 of this study. Section 3 addresses the major evaluation questions of the study and describes the impact of ASAP on the traffic safety system in statistical terms.
