The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility researches current trends and develops policy and program initiatives to stop impaired driving. We support proven strategies and practices to reduce the number of fatalities and injuries caused on our nation’s roadways by drunk drivers.
For those individuals who are not deterred by preventative efforts, other proven strategies and interventions are needed to address their behavior. We also need to work collaboratively with criminal justice and traffic safety leaders to identify emerging issues and equip them with the tools and strategies they need to be able to effectively enforce DUI laws, adjudicate, sanction, supervise, and treat impaired drivers. It is with practitioners that the ‘rubber meets the road’ as they are on the frontlines of the system and have the greatest potential to reduce DUI recividism.
Over the years, we have worked alongside coalition partners to support effective legislation in more than 45 states and at the federal level. Additionally, we collaborate with elected officials, criminal justice practitioners, and traffic safety experts to advocate for policy changes. These partners have also helped launch our prevention programs in more than 3,000 communities across the nation.
