COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF ALCOHOL HIGHWAY SAFETY JUDICIAL STANDARDS AND EXISTING PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS. VOLUME I: TECHNICAL REPORT
The contract required an examination of all existing professional standards and model codes which in some way related to the processing of drinking-driving cases through the courts. The objective was to determine whether existing professional standards and codes adequately and appropriately respond to the realities of drinking-driving case processing and, if not, to recommend what might be done. A technical analysis and comparison of existing standards and codes was prepared by American Bar Foundation staff. A 13-member Study Team, consisting primarily of representatives of standards-producing national organizations, met several times throughout the course of the contract to monitor the creation of the technical analysis, assess the adequacy of existing standards in view of real-world needs, plan and conduct a Conference on National Standards for Drinking-Driving Cases (held in Chicago on October 13-14, 1978), and prepare recommendations for future activity in the area of development of standards and codes.
