The Texas Impaired Driving Task Force (TIDTF) has been established for several years but has operated in some capacity for over a decade. What was an informal “working group” has evolved to become a multi-faceted “task force.” In April 2017, the TIDTF voiced the need to better understand the role and function statewide task forces play. By understanding how other state task forces operate, the TIDTF can explore ways to improve its current processes and remain at the forefront of reducing, and ultimately, eliminating impaired driving in Texas.
To meet this need, in FY 2018, the TIDTF Administration interviewed several states in an effort to identify best practices and strategies for state impaired driving task forces. The TIDTF developed a survey used to interview representatives from 5 state impaired driving task forces. The survey focused on three primary areas: background, operation, and impact of the state impaired driving task forces. Read the full tech memo.
