Dear 3D Lifesavers,
The elections are over, the holidays are upon us and year's end is fast approaching. We need your support more now than ever. Now is the time for us to come together for the prevention of distracted, drugged, and drunk driving. We Save Lives has been working hard for the last several years, to change attitudes and make drugged and distracted driving socially unacceptable. These are some of the ways we have been working on your behalf:
Reflections from Inside
Our video #reflectionsfrominside has been shown all over the world, reaching more than 200 million people, and the impact has been overwhelming. "Here's One Powerful Way To Discourage Drunk Driving" is just one of the many headlines used to describe this video.

Drop the "A" Word
Through our social media efforts we convinced the AP Style Book to rethink their definition of the word "accident" and instead encourage the use of the words "crash", "collision", and other terms.
When negligence is claimed or proven, the use of the word "accident" deflects responsibility and accountability away from the person. We continue to alert the media and others when accident is used inappropriately.

We work tirelessly with our partners and DUID victims to educate members of
and state legislators about the seriousness of drugged driving (DUID). We identified the problem and provided solutions. We were the first advocacy organization to make this issue a priority and we will continue to push for appropriate legislation to ensure DUID is taken seriously by our courts.
We introduced and continue to support
roadside oral-fluid testing
that would help law enforcement identify drugged drivers and get them off the road.
We support efforts to implement the
program across the country that would mandate offender sobriety through intensive testing for drug and alcohol use.
Now that we have moved to our new location near the geopolitical center of the world, Washington, D.C., we can work even harder to protect you and our loved ones.
