UMTRI researches how many
auto fatalities in the area are re-
lated to alcohol. When police is-
sue a DUI (Driving Under the In-
fluence), they usually ask where
the driver is coming from,
Langston said.
Police notice a slight reduction
in the number of DUI tickets is-
sued to people coming from bars,
Gray said.
At the bar, police identify drunk
customers by the seven signs of in-
toxication including, "antagonism,
loss of coordination, flushed face,

'In a perfect situation,

University researcher
Of 116 visits to local estab-
lishments, local police have issued
two warnings and two citations for
serving intoxicated patrons, said
Lt. Atkinson of the Ann Arbor Po-
lice Department.
"Those sound like low num-
bers," Streff said, "but that could

such as women's groups, church

In a recent meeting with the po-
lice department, bar owners voiced
complaints that patrons do not
know why servers refuse their re=
quests for more alcohol. "They ex-
pressed great frustration that young
patrons didn't understand it was
against the law," Streff said.
Randy Demankowski, Gener@
Manager of O'Sullivan's, said it
was hard to tell whether or not the
program succeeded in lowering the
number of violations. "Basically,
(police) are doing their job, and if
it's working, that's great."
The NIAAA will publish the re-
sults of the program at the end of
the year, Langston said.

Hands-on, concrete work, such
as putting recycling bins in com-

feature of ESP, said Stempien.
Right now, he said, MSA passes

An amendment to the bill re-
quires any University that decides
to employ the legislation to hold a
set of public hearings.

Dolgon said he is concerned the
University will decide to enact the
legislation in April and hold the
hearings when students are off
campus.
But Director of University Rela-
tions Walter Harrison said, "There
are no concrete plans to switch to

the legislation in April. We do in-
tend to make the switch at some
point, but there are no plans at all
at this point."
Washtenaw County Sheriff Ron
Schebil said, "We can live with a
loose time frame, this is a phase-in
program. But we have corre-
sponded to the University that we
would prefer they move toward us-
ing legislation."
There are currently 10 depu-
tized campus police officers.

to see a lot of the tension (within
MSA) removed. I just hope to see,
in the future, a more resolved and
united assembly."
Other significant features of the
ESP platform are its call for im-
mediate student recognition of all
student groups, having no MSA
money spent abroad, providing
more money for student groups,
more actions taken concerning
women's,-race, and environmental
issues, Stempien said.
Concerning MSA's relations
with the University administration
and its policies, ESP is against the
deputization of campus police and
the implementation of a code of
non-academic conduct. Sometimes

WALK
Continued from page 1
night or every Wednesday night or
every Thursday night," said
Niederstadt.
Organizers want to emphasize
their availability on campus. "If
you feel comfortable walking
across campus alone at night,
that's fine, but know that we are
here," said Northwalk coordinator
Robert Tyson.
On north campus, Northwalk
provides the same service as
Safewalk. The program started in
fall of 1989.
The smaller Northwalk program
averages 100 walks in the fall and
less than half of that number in the
winter term. This term is different,
however. "This term we're will on
our way to crushing that record -
maybe even before Spring Break,"
said Tyson.
Both University walking ser-
vices provide a co-ed or female
team to escort members of the
University community to any des-
tination within a 20 minute walk-
ing zone.
"The majority of all walkees
are female," said Nicole Carson,
Safewalk coordinator for the 1989-
1990 academic year. "A lot of the
reason as to why people get walks

is for company's sake. Sending out
two men would just be too intimi-
dating. Safewalk is not a chivalo
rous thing. It's not men going to
walk women."
Carson emphasized the success
of the program. "We are unique.
It's all volunteer except for the two
coordinators. It runs every night
through the (academic) year. It's a
pretty solid program," she added.
"In a lot of ways we're a model
for other schools. We got a lot o
calls last year from other schools
to start programs like ours."
University Department of
Safety and Security recently do-
nated approximately 10 radios
worth $2,000 each to the walking
program to enhance communica-
tion, said Sullivan.
Besides allowing dispatchers
and escorts to communicate better
the radios have served anothe
purpose. "They've helped the
walkers know that the University is
trying to help out. It lets the stu-
dents know the University does
care," Niederstadt said.
Nonetheless, walking organiz-
ers would like more money to ex-
pand on North Campus and make
the program more visible.
The Nite Owl bus service pro*
vides another alternative to walk-
ing alone, seven days a week from
7 p.m. to 2 a.m.
