WHAT’S YOUR PLAN TO GET HOME SAFE?
Don’t Drink and Drive!
In 2012, RPA received a Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant to combat alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes. Over the three-year period of the grant, RPA helped fund increased traffic stops in the affected neighborhoods. RPA also produced multiple TV and radio public service announcements that called attention to the consequences of drinking and driving and by asking people, What’s Your Plan?, to get home safe – ensuring there is a safe way of getting home.
Since these strategies have been in place, the number of alcohol-related crashes have gone down in Roanoke City.
