What better time to thank all of you, our supporters for your ongoing belief in our programs and campaigns designed to bring awareness to the problems of drunk, drugged and distracted driving (the 3D's). We not only educate you about these dangers but also provide you action items you can implement and share with others so they too will learn how to drive safe.
#BUTNOTWHILEDRIVING - When you add these words to your mobile device signature, you are letting everyone know that distracted driving is socially unacceptable. You are also giving them fair warning that you do not use your mobile device while driving and they shouldn’t either. It is a simple message that says a lot.
#TheCouragetoIntervenePromise - Everyone knows you are not supposed to drive impaired but some people seem to ignore common sense. The Promise goes beyond asking people not to drink and drive or drive distracted, it asks the passengers to intervene when their lives are at stake. If every passenger kept their driver from driving irresponsibly, thousands of lives would be saved. You and your family and friends can sign the Promise and keep others from dangerous driving.
The Drop the “A” Word Campaign – Motor vehicle “Accidents” don’t just happen. They are usually the result of someone’s poor driving choice. Those of us who have been impacted by the 3 D’s feel victimized again and again each time we hear that word when referring to our crash. Someone made the CHOICE to drive impaired. Someone made the CHOICE to drive distracted. The media is especially guilty of using the word accident despite our efforts encouraging them to report accurately. We even convinced AP Style Guide to recommend “when negligence is claimed or proven, avoid accident, which can be read as exonerating the person responsible.” Learn more about why we launched this campaign and support victims and survivors by signing our petition.
Driving High Means a DUI - Drugged driving is dangerous, especially driving under the influence of marijuana. We Save Lives along with DUID Victim Voices launched a petition drive notifying our legislators that they need to take action to prevent more crashes from marijuana impaired driving. We even developed a policy statement to help them implement solutions to the problem. Please share with your Representatives.
Reflections from Inside

The military uses it, especially during the pandemic when our speakers find it difficult to travel, law enforcement use it in their presentations along with driving schools and so many others. Please feel free to show to your organizations, family and or friends. It will make them “think twice.”
