As of February 29, 2008:
Road Crew has given 97,220 rides.

Now Recruiting New Communities

With the federal fiscal year starting on October 1, 2007, Road Crew is now poised to fund new communities. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation has restructured the program funding to provide up to three research and developments grants of $5,000 each to prospective communities for a six-month planning and preparation period, followed by up to three grants of $30,000 each for a one-year program implementation. Interested communities should contact us for more information.

Research Supports Road Crew Impact

Strong support for the contention that Road Crew is having an impact on reducing alcohol-impaired crashes comes from “Reducing Alcohol-Impaired Driving Crashes Through the Use of Social Marketing” by Rothschild, Mastin and Miller (2006), a paper that appeared in Accident Analysis and Prevention. This journal is ranked #1 in the world among transportation journals by Journal Citation Reports, the leading authority in ranking the quality of scholarly journals.
