Significant strides have been made in the past few years in the development and implementation of programs and policies to deal with hard core drinking drivers. Legislation and regulation in this area have been and continue to be a necessary first step. But it is not sufficient, as evidenced by the fact that many of the laws are simply not being applied. The purpose of the current project is (1) to identify problems throughout the entire DWI system – from enforcement to prosecution to adjudication to sanctioning to monitoring – that are making it possible for hard core offenders to “slip through the cracks”, and (2) to identify ways to fix these problems.
