Fight Impaired Driving – Impaired driving is no accident. It’s a serious and deadly crime that kills every 30 minutes. The Impaired Driving Division of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) works to save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce traffic-related healthcare and economic costs resulting from impaired driving due to alcohol and other drugs. NHTSA collaborates with criminal justice and community organizations to sponsor impaired driving campaigns. For toolkits and resources, visit www.stopimpaireddriving.org.
