(4/15/2004 - 11/14/2005) Proposal Abstract
The objectives of this Task Order are as follows:
Develop a "Status of the Problem" of the existence of the various tools and devices that
allegedly simulate alcohol impairment or intoxication for educational purposes and are used in the public domain.
Conduct a comprehensive and critical literature review of available research, programs, strategies, and devices aimed at educating the public on drinking and driving by using simulated alcohol-impairment concepts, especially those used by young people who are still forming opinions about alcohol and driving.
Identify, from the literature search and a series of brainstorming sessions, any effective or model programs, interventions, devices, concepts, or strategies that may be more cost-effective or valid ways to simulate alcohol impairment, especially with regard to driving.
Develop a comprehensive final report along with a user-friendly synopsis that will be understandable to the target audiences.
