ANALYTIC STUDY NUMBER FIVE. DRIVER DIAGNOSIS AND REFERRAL ACTIVITY UTAH ASAP (ALCOHOL SAFETY ACTION PROJECT)
About two of three drivers convicted of DUI were referred for pre-sentence investigation during Utah ASAP operation. More than 95% of the recommendations made are taken by the Courts. Pre-sentence investigators use three categories to group drivers referred. One of these groups has the highest levels of drinking and driving involvement, but individuals in this group are seldom required to have treatment. It is recommended that treatment modalities suitable for this type of drinking driver be developed. Those referred for investigation have lower recidivism rates than those not referred for investigation for the first year following conviction. After this time, recidivism rates for the two groups are the same.
