MADD National Drunk and Impaired Driving Prevention Month

Impaired Driving


A driver commits the crime of impaired driving whenever his or her ability to safely operate a vehicle is impaired by the effects of illegal drugs, prescription medications, or over-the-counter medications or by having a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 grams per deciliter or higher (OVC Help Series for Crime Victims: Impaired Driving), Office for Victims of Crime, 2012).

Since 1981, every President of the United States has demonstrated a commitment to preventing impaired driving by proclaiming December as National Drunk and Drugged Driving (3D) Prevention Month and, most recently, as National Impaired Driving Prevention Month. In recognition of this observance, NCJRS presents the Special Feature: Impaired Driving, which contains publications and other resources related to this topic.
