2017 Labor Day Drunk Driving Prevention Campaign

It’s that time of year again where everyone can play a part in NHTSA’s nationwide impaired driving campaign!

2017 Labor DayThe National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) will partner with law enforcement nationwide during the 2017 Labor Day Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over high-visibility enforcement campaign from August 16 through September 4.

The 2017 enforcement campaign includes the Labor Day holiday weekend, which is one of the deadliest times of the year for drunk-driving fatalities. With NHTSA’s support, State and local law enforcement agencies across the Nation are stepping up enforcement to put an end to drunk driving.

Over the 2015 Labor Day holiday period, there were 460 crash fatalities nationwide. Forty percent of those fatal crashes involved drivers who had been drinking (.01+ BAC).  Of those alcohol-related fatal crashes, nearly one third (33%) involved drivers who were impaired (.08+ BAC), and nearly one-fourth (23%) involved drivers who were driving with a BAC almost twice the illegal limit (.15+ BAC).

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.
