The Contra Costa County educational program for juveniles found guilty of driving under the influence (DUI) was evaluated.
Over 600 juveniles convicted of DUI from 1983 to 1988 formed the study group for this research and of these over 100 participated in the educational program.
Assessment of program participants was conducted for knowledge, attitudes and behavior.
Participants demonstrated increased knowledge, stronger attitudes against driving under the influence, and less risky alcohol and automobile related behaviors.
County juvenile records analyzed by the logit procedure showed that class participants had a significantly lower number of repeat offenses compared to non-program participants that could not be explained by race, offense severity, age or gender.
