The Emergence of HAMM
With increasing frequency Judges are ordering as a term of probation for DUI that offenders attend a hospital and morgue program, known as HAMM. The Courts want to take a shock approach with probationers and therefore require the programs that show the attendees dead bodies, injured individuals and the aftermath of DUi accidents. These Court ordered programs seeks to impress upon the students that drinking and driving causes death and despair for all. I am awaiting a study that presents any empirical evidence of the program's effectiveness. Anyone with info. please comment.
