OKLAHOMA CITY ALCOHOL SAFETY ACTION PROJECT: EFFECTIVENESS AND EFFICIENCY; ANALYTIC STUDY NO. I

This report describes the progress and performance of the Oklahoma City Alcohol Safety Action Project (ASAP) during the five-year period 1972 - 1976. The findings of this study include: (1) ASAP enforcement personnel effected 17,187 DUI arrests in Oklahoma City from January, 1972 through December, 1976. (2) ASAP enforcement efficiency as measured in DUI arrests per man-hour increased by a factor of three during the ASAP period covered. (3) Over the five-year period (1972 - 1976) the Oklahoma City Municipal Court disposed of 15,027 DUI cases with 94.9% resulting in a conviction. (4) Average processing time for DUI offenders (arrest to final disposition) decreased from 129 days in 1971 to 65 days in 1976. (5) Knowledge and attitudes of Oklahoma City drivers toward the impaired drinking driver and drinking-driving improved significantly as a result of ASAP. (6) Impactable alcohol related (A/R) fatal accidents in Oklahoma City have remained essentially constant during the year 1973 - 1976 (avg = 26). This level was substantially below the 35 impactable A/R Fatal accidents in 1972 and the estimated 39 A/R fatal accidents in 1971. (pre-ASAP)
