The purpose of the study is to demonstrate ASAP's impact on the judicial disposition of alcohol-related traffic arrests. The effect which ASAP has had on the judicial process are measured in relation to the use of presentence investigations, disposition processing time, types of sanctions imposed, and the manner in which referral actions have been utilized. The report also evaluates the effects which referral actions have had on driving behavior. These effects center around ASAP's objective of reducing alcohol-related traffic crashes and whether alternative sanctions and referral actions have proven themselves effective toward this end. The above propositions are measured in terms of recidivism rates.
