TitleIssues in developing best practice in drink driving enforcement
AuthorsHarrison W, Newman S, Baldock MRJ, McLean AJ
Year2002
TypeReport
AbstractDrink-driving enforcement is a key component of road safety programs in all jurisdictions in Australasia, with comprehensive enforcement programs that seek both to apprehend offenders and to deter potential offenders. There are some differences between the enforcement programs in each jurisdiction, but the similarities outweigh these. The Police organisations in each jurisdiction are keen to develop further their enforcement programs in a way that maximises their effectiveness while still meeting their particular social, policy, cultural, and political responsibilities. This project was funded by Austroads to provide information to Australasian Police organisations concerning key issues currently confronting effective enforcement programs that target drink driving.
