During September, 1975, the Los Angeles County Alcohol Safety Action Project conducted its fourth and final roadside survey. One-thousand and twenty drivers were sampled from three selected areas in L.A. County. Of the 1020 drivers contacted, 980 volunteered to complete the 30-question interview and provide a breath sample for later analyses of alcohol content. Significant demographic differences were observed between the nighttime driver and the nighttime drinking driver. Analyses of drinking and driving behavior of respondents indicated significant socio-cultural influences. Over the four day survey period 24 percent of those sampled had been drinking (BAC .01) and 3 percent were driving under the influence (BAC .10).
