The Effectiveness of a Uniform Traffic School Curriculum for Negligent Drivers. Highway Research Final Report.
Harano, Richard M.; Peck, Raymond C.
The report covers an evaluation of the Uniform Driver Improvement School (UDIS) curriculum. Included in the sample were licensed California English-speaking traffic violators from the Richmond, Stockton, San Diego, and Los Angeles areas. Overall, the results directionally favored the UDIS over the control on both post accidents and convictions, although the results were not conclusive due to several significant treatment interactions. Further, results differed between male and female. Little difference was found between UDIS and the regular school. Analysis of the questionnaire item dealing with traffic school evaluation gave indication that UDIS subjects were more positively oriented toward traffic school than were control subjects.
