Anyone convicted of impaired driving, or on a diversion program, may attend Survivor Speakout online LIVE or in person. Visitors are always welcome to the in-person panels if space permits. The presentation includes impairment by alcohol, drugs, prescription drugs, texting, fatigue, sleeplessness, inattention to the road, eating, grooming, distracted driving and speeding. Any conditions caused by the driver that prevent responsible, safe operation of a vehicle causes impairment of some kind.
Being arrested while drinking and driving, or driving under the influence of drugs, is a serious issue that affects many lives, not just the person who is arrested. The financial costs are tremendous, but imagine being arrested for seriously hurting or killing someone in a crash while impaired. Or causing your own death. The consequences are nothing you can imagine.
The presentation is also used to educate young adults, teen drivers and adults you may know who drive impaired on a regular basis. Survivor Speakout is all about choices and consequences.
