NHTSA Targets Drunk Driving with New Partnership Funding

The NHTSA has provided the organizations with $1.8 million to combat impaired driving, support the 911 network, enhance safety messaging for young drivers, and give technical assistance to state officials on a wide range of traffic safety issues.

“This funding will help NHTSA and our partners improve highway safety for all, and will provide critical leadership for reducing the incidence of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol,” said James Owens, NHTSA’s acting administrator. “Together with our partners, we can create change and make traveling safer for everybody.”
