The purpose of this cooperative agreement program is to support the development, implementation, and evaluation of up to three programs (with a law enforcement component) designed to reduce the incidence of impaired motorcycle riding and injuries and fatalities resulting from alcohol-related motorcycle crashes.
Specific objectives for this cooperative agreement program are as follows:
1. Identify a community that demonstrates the potential for successful implementation and evaluation of innovative law enforcement-based approaches to reduce impaired motorcycle riding and the resulting injuries and fatalities associated with alcohol-related motorcycle crashes.
2. Use community data to define the problem, as appropriate. These data are to extend beyond police crash reports to the extent possible.
3. Actively engage the community to define the problem and potential solutions to the problem. The community may include but not be limited to, motorcyclists, law enforcement officials, traffic safety officials, prosecutors and judges, military personnel, and health care and injury prevention professionals. The grantee shall develop strategies for ensuring community involvement in the process.
4. Implement a program to reduce the incidence of impaired motorcycle riding and the injuries and fatalities associated with alcohol-related motorcycle crashes. The intervention should be creative, based on data and citizen input and comprehensive in nature. The intervention should be designed to allow for easy implementation and replication.
5. Evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention. The evaluation should include process and outcome measures. The evaluation may include but not be limited to the following: what works, what does not work, how to engage partners, methods of overcoming barriers or challenges, and ways to turn challenges into opportunities.
There are several approaches recommended in Drinking, Riding, and Prevention: A Focus Group Study and the National Agenda. In addition, many successful approaches used to reduce impaired driving should be considered for application to address the impaired riding problem. Innovative programs that support the recommendations provided by either document or the successful approaches identified (and include a law enforcement component) will be considered. Each cooperative agreement recipient will be expected to implement and evaluate an approach to determine the effectiveness of reducing the incidence of impaired riding. Project length will vary depending on the scope of the proposed effort. However, projects will be considered for a minimum of two years and a maximum of three years. Upon completion, the programs may be implemented in other areas for a more thorough evaluation.
