Celebrate Safely, Designate a Driver

2019 Celebrate Safely Artwork

We have promoted our annual Celebrate Safely, Designate a Driver campaign and the Recipes for the Road booklet for 24 years. According to Florida’s 2021-2025 SHSP, one out of every four traffic fatalities in Florida involves a driver impaired by alcohol or drugs. Celebrate Safely, Designate a Driver and Recipes for the Road focus on the SHSP strategies of both education and insight into creating safer communities. They are specifically designed to work with local partners. This includes law enforcement, team members, restaurants, and bars. The goal is to promote responsible alcohol service and personal use at events or party hosting. They also promote safe transportation choices that encourage alternatives to driving while impaired.

Impaired Driving Initiative

This impaired driving initiative was created to help reduce alcohol-related traffic deaths and injuries throughout the holiday season. The Drive Safe and Drive Sober message is key at any time of year, and especially during the holidays. The following are important impaired driving safety tips and reminders included in this campaign. Before drinking alcohol, designate a non-drinking driver. Never let your friends drive impaired. Get a safe ride home – call a cab/ride-share. If you’re hosting a party, offer alcohol-free beverages, serve food, and make sure all guests leave with a sober driver.

During the holiday season, District Two CTST members reach out to local restaurants and bars to display the Celebrate Safely, Designate a Driver materials. Materials include 11×17 full-color posters, coasters and stickers. Numerous neighborhood establishments throughout Northeast Florida participate every year.

Mobility Week

Mobility Week, successfully launched in 2016 in Central Florida, is an annual collection of outreach events intended to bring attention to safe multimodal transportation choices. The success of the Central Florida region in bringing together regional partners to promote the message of safety and multimodal transportation, prompted the expansion of the initiative statewide in 2018.

During Mobility Week, cities, counties, and transportation partner agencies host events to promote transportation choices, highlight transportation achievements, and roll out new initiatives or policies.Click here to find out more about the events and activities from the last three years.
