Kentucky "Buckle Up in Your Truck 225" Race & Campaign

NASCAR’s fan base largely overlaps with those drivers most likely to undertake risky behaviors behind the wheel, and several State Highway Safety Offices have collaborated with drivers and tracks to deliver the safe driving message. The Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) is one such state, partnering with the Kentucky Speedway for “Buckle Up in Your Truck 225.”

Responsibility.org Drugged Driving Grant Results: West Virginia

The West Virginia Governor's Highway Safety Program was one of the recipients of GHSA and the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility's (Responsibility.org) 2017 grants to combat drug-impaired driving.

Before receiving the grant, West Virginia had 33 trained Drug Recognition Experts (DREs) providing services to the state's 55 counties. In order to fill gaps in staffing, West Virginia sought to use this funding to add an additional DRE training class in 2017.

Responsibility.org Drugged Driving Grant Results: Texas

The Texas Department of Transportation's Traffic Safety Section was one of the recipients of GHSA and Responsibility.org's 2016 grants aimed at combating drug-impaired driving.

After experiencing a 19% increase in fatal crashes involving a drug-impaired driver between 2013 and 2014, TxDOT sought to add more law enforcement officers trained in Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) to their roads.
