TitleEffectiveness of RBT related to enforcement level and publicity
AuthorsMcCaul KA, McLean AJ
Year1990
TypeConference Paper
AbstractImmediately after Easter in 1987 South Australian police increased the level of enforcement of random breath testing with the aim of doubling the number of drivers breath tested. The increase in the level of enforcement was accompanied by intensive publicity. A roadside breath alcohol survey was conducted to evaluate the effect of these changes. There was a reduction of 34% in the proportion of drivers with a blood alcohol level at or above the legal limit of 0.08g/100mL.
