Every so often, we like to pick out great examples of road safety action with young people and feature them on our website. This year we have had lots of new members from Asia, Africa, Europe, North America and beyond and it gives us great pleasure to share more information about network members to our global audience. In this spotlight we focus on the Georgia Alliance for Safe Roads from the Country of Georgia.
On that very day a new Campaign „Don't Drink and Drive!" was launched in the framework of the Georgia‘s First Lady's Healthy Life Style Initiative „Don't Worry, Be Healthy". The Campaign/Project is initiated and conducted by "Georgian Alliance for Safe Roads". The donors of the Campaign are: Company "Natakhtari", Insurance Company "GPI Holding", Toyota Caucasus LLC and the U.S. Embassy in Georgia. Road safety public-education campaign aims to raise public awareness of the problems that drunk driving can cause, and to reduce the number of crashes caused by drunk driving.
The goal of the campaign “Don’t Drink and Drive” is to reduce the number of crashes caused by drunk driving, by changing the behavior of drivers through the public awareness campaigns and enhanced enforcement of traffic rules. There’s no excuse for getting behind the wheel when you’re drunk: not emergencies, not ignorance of the law, not "believing you hadn’t drunk anything", not... anything. Even one injury or death due to a drunk driving accident is one too many, because accidents due to drinking and driving are completely preventable!
The Georgia Alliance for Safe Roads have become an active member of our network with some fantastic submissions for the Long Short Walk at YOURS:
