Journal Article Critique
Most people who are convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) in the United States are repeat offenders. As a result, many research studies have been conducted to find out specific factors affecting DUI recidivism. However, most of the studies have focused on the drinking habits as well as drinking-related problems of the repeat offenders leaving specific research gaps. Miller & Fillmore’s (2014) research study sought to bridge this gap by establishing the role of alcohol-related cognition on the development and escalation of alcohol use.

The first group comprised of recidivists DUI offenders who have been convicted at least twice.
