4th of July Drunk Driving Prevention Campaign

We love to celebrate the 4th of July with family, friends, food, and fireworks, but all too often the festivities turn tragic on the nation's roads. The fact is, this iconic American holiday is also one of the deadliest holidays of the year due to drunk-driving crashes.

4th of July
4th of July
Over the 4th of July holiday period in 2015 (6 p.m. July 2 to 5:59 a.m. July 6),

  • 146 people were killed in crashes involving at least one driver or motorcycle operator with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher.
  • 92 people died in crashes involving at least one driver or motorcycle operator with a BAC of .15 or higher - almost twice the legal limit.

These marketing tools can be distributed to fit your local needs and objectives while, at the same time, partnering with other States, communities, and organizations on this drunk driving prevention initiative.

With Hawaii signing on in 2012 as the 50th and final State to enact "Move Over" legislation, we need to get the word out to all drivers and maximize the safety potential of these laws. By working with local organizations and raising public awareness of "Move Over" laws through earned and social media, you can make a difference and save lives.

All 50 States have "Move Over" laws to protect law enforcement officers and other first responders stopped on our Nation's roads. Yet only 71% of the public are aware of these laws, and traffic-related incidents continue to be the number one cause of death among on-duty law enforcement officers. Together with our law enforcement partners and State Highway Safety Offices, NHTSA is working to increase awareness of these life-saving "Move Over" laws and highlight the need to protect public safety professionals who place themselves at risk to protect motorists.

Vehicle Heatstroke Prevention (Summer 2017)

Vehicle Heatstroke Prevention

Heatstroke is the leading cause of vehicular non-crash-related deaths for children under 14. In fact, each year, an average of 37 children have died from vehicle heatstroke between 1998-2015.

While it seems like an impossible mistake to make, every parent or caregiver can potentially become distracted, and distractions often fuel this devastating situation.

No one is immune. Yet, this tragedy is 100% preventable.

We each have a role to play to help keep our kids safe. Help us share live-saving tips and resources with as many people as we can.
