DUI Awareness Campaign Starts in Florida

It’s probably the most dangerous thing you’ve done all day.

We are talking about driving.

A car wreck can take a life in an instant.

It’s a lesson Linda Silva learned three years ago. Her son Alex was killed in a drunk driving accident.

Wednesday, she shared her story at the state capitol to kick off a campaign to end distracted driving.

“Is a drink worth it? Is that text message worth it? If it’s so important pull over. Don’t do it while you are driving.”

The campaign is being launched by the Florida Association of DUI Programs. It’s called Be Ready for the Road Ahead. Billboards are part of the campaign. They will be posted throughout the state to encourage kids to develop safe driving habits.
