What began as an informal meeting has evolved over the last 10 years to create the current task force. The task force includes Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) subgrantees and other stakeholders not directly affiliated with TxDOT’s Traffic Safety Section.
The task force meets at least twice a year, and provides insight and guidance to TxDOT’s alcohol and other drug countermeasure program.
Members of the task force include representatives from law enforcement, prosecution, adjudication, prevention, advocacy, media development/communications, traffic safety education, treatment, research, training, alcohol service, driver licensing, employers, administrative sanctioning, and public health/medical. The members represent different aspects of the impaired driving issue as well as the geographic and demographic diversity of the state.
