Summary

On October 25, 2007, the Inspector General testified before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, Subcommittee on Transportation Safety, Infrastructure Security, and Water Quality on the effectiveness of Federal drunk driving programs. The Inspector General's statement focused on the following areas: (1) key strategies identified for countering alcohol-impaired driving; (2) how the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) could better measure the effectiveness of key strategies; and (3) actions NHTSA has agreed to take, in concert with the states, to improve performance measures for alcohol-impaired driving. The Inspector General urged NHTSA to work more aggressively with its state partners to accomplish these actions in advance of the scheduled 3-year time period.
