College and Young Adult Impaired Driving
Celebrating spring break is a rite of passage for many Texas college students, but too often a fun getaway with friends ends in tragedy when someone drives under the influence of alcohol or drugs. That’s why TxDOT is using its Drive Sober. No Regrets. campaign to share with college students the real-life experiences of people affected by impaired driving crashes across Texas.
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. 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.
Visit SoberRides.org for tips on finding a sober ride and to learn more about the real costs of driving impaired. Follow the hashtag #DriveSoberNoRegrets to keep up with the campaign on social media.
