College and Young Adult Impaired Driving

Drunk drivers claim the lives of hundreds of Texans every year, and spring break can be a particularly deadly time. TxDOT's Drive Sober. No Regrets. campaign is reminding everyone — especially students on spring break — to help prevent these tragic deaths by never driving after drinking any amount of alcohol.

The campaign shares personal accounts from real offenders and survivors that challenge any notion the audience may have that they can avoid the consequences of drinking and driving. It reinforces the importance of always finding a sober ride and using the many options available. People can designate a driver who has not consumed any amount of alcohol, call a taxi, use a rideshare service, stay where they are, call a friend or family member, or use mass transit. 

Driving under the influence can cost up to $17,000 in fines and fees, jail time, loss of a driver’s license, significant legal hassles, difficulty finding or keeping a job, loss of trust from loved ones, and a lifetime of regret.
