Numerous bills filed in the 82nd Session of the Texas Legislature are focused on a wide range of issues related to impaired driving. In response to requests from legislators and their staffs, researchers at the Center for Transportation Safety have prepared a series of briefing documents to provide better understanding of some of those issues, including:
- An examination of the scope of the impaired-driving problem in Texas including,
how best to measure the impact of countermeasures.
- An overview of the use of sobriety checkpoints, including details on their effectiveness, efficiency and public attitudes.
- A review of the use of ignition interlock devices, including the challenges that their use presents.
The briefing document series is available here.
