AN ANALYSIS OF THE IMPACT OF ASAP ON THE TRAFFIC SAFETY SYSTEM. ANALYTIC STUDY NUMBER 4
The Sioux City/Woodbury County Alcohol Safety Action Project (ASAP) became operational July 1, 1972. The primary purpose of the project was to reduce the number of alcohol-related fatalities, injury accidents, and amount of personal property loss. Secondary gains which might occur as a result of enforcement efforts during the operational period were assessed but the focus of attention was the drinking driver, especially the problem drinker. Four countermeasure areas became functional after July 24, 1972, including (1) Law Enforcement, (2) Judicial, (3) Rehabilitation, and (4) Public Information and Education (PI&E). Law enforcement countermeasures included but were not restricted to increased attention to detection and arrest of suspected drinking drivers. The Judicial area included attempts to define the problem drinker in a more objective fashion and refer drivers arrested on alcohol-related charges to appropriate treatment programs. The rehabilitation effort consisted of different 'schools' providing various approaches and levels of intensiveness to re-educate and change the behavior of drinking drivers.
