Alcohol-Impaired Driving

Impaired driving and alcohol-related crashes constitute a major threat to the safety and well being of the public. This is especially true among young people age 15 to 24, where impaired driving is the leading cause of death. These programs aim to prevent people from driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or other drugs and to remove DUI drivers from the road. OTS grants use a comprehensive approach by funding educational, prevention, and enforcement programs and by focusing on high-risk groups.
