Don’t Drink & Drive: Celebrate Safely, Designate A Driver

No Regrets When You DRIVE SOBER – Impaired Driving Safety Campaign

For over two decades, the Northeast Florida Department of Transportation District Two Community Traffic Safety Program (CTSP) has been promoting the highly effective Celebrate Safely, Designate A Driver campaign. 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:

  • Before drinking alcohol, designate a non-drinking driver.
  • Never let your friends drive impaired.
  • Get a safe ride home – call a cab/ride-share/Uber/Lyft.
  • If you’re hosting a party, offer alcohol-free beverages, serve food, and make sure all guests leave with a sober driver.

According to Florida’s 2021-2025 Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP), one out of every four traffic fatalities in Florida involves a driver impaired by alcohol or drugs. 

The CTSP focuses on SHSP strategies to reduce impaired driving through both education, outreach and insight into creating safer communities. The materials created are specifically designed to work with local partners including law enforcement, team members, restaurants, and bars to promote responsible alcohol service and personal use at events or party hosting. The CTSP promotes safe transportation choices that encourage alternatives to driving while impaired with the goal of zero fatalities.
