An Initial Evaluation of the North Carolina Alcohol and Drug Education Traffic Schools. Volume I: Technical Report.
Popkin, Carol L.; And Others
This report contains the results of an evaluation of the North Carolina Alcohol Drug Education Traffic Schools (ADETS), established for the primary purpose of treating first offenders convicted of driving under the influence (DUI), and careless and reckless driving after drinking. Following the executive summary and introduction, the second section contains a description of the statewide program and of an ADETS course attended by project personnel. The third section is an analysis of knowledge changes attributable to attendance at ADETS as measured by tests routinely administered by the schools at the beginning and conclusion of the course. The fourth section presents the results of surveys of the schools' user groups.. The fifth section provides a description of similar schools in neighboring states. The final section contains the results of an analysis of traffic conviction and crash data which compares the experience of persons completing ADETS in 1980 and 1981 with that of persons convicted of the same offenses in the same period who did not attend ADETS. The final chapter contains a discussion of the program implications based on the overall findings. (JAC)
