THE BREAKDOWN ON HOLIDAY DUI

As members of law enforcement, we
understand that you have one of the
toughest jobs in the state. Day and night,
through every holiday and on weekends,
you work tirelessly to keep our state’s
roads safe. Sadly, drunk-driving crashes are scenes you have likely seen many times. In
Florida in 2016, there were 461 people killed in drunk-driving crashes, there were 5,223
total crashes involving a drunk driver. We at FDOT and the LEL Program work to make sure
drivers and road users are safe. Yet we cannot do it without you. As the holiday season
nears, we are reminded that it is a dangerous time for drivers on the roads due to an
increase in drunk-driving crashes. This holiday season help us spread the lifesaving
message: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.

Florida Law Enforcement Liaison Program

The 2018 Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over concluded with
294 Florida Police Agencies completing the Labor Day
Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Report.
A huge THANK YOU to those that took the time to
complete the report.

Florida Hits All-Time High Safety Belt Usage Rate TALLAHASSEE, FL – The Florida
Department of Transportation (FDOT) announced that Florida’s statewide safety belt
usage rate has reached an all-time high of 90.6 percent. FDOT released the June 2018
Safety Belt Use in Florida report which affirms that FDOT and its traffic safety partners
are providing effective occupant protection programs. Florida’s educational efforts,
Click It or Ticket campaigns and high visibility law enforcement campaigns have
continued to help increase Florida’s safety belt usage rates. The previous record for
Florida safety belt compliance was 90.2 percent (June 2017 Safety Belt Use in Florida
report).

Florida Governor Rick Scott said, “I’m proud of the work FDOT does each day to keep
Florida residents and visitors safe on our roadways.

FDOT Secretary Mike Dew said, “Safety is the number one priority at the Florida
Department of Transportation. We recognize the integral role safety belts play in
protecting drivers and passengers in a crash. Everyday lives are saved and people
avoid serious injury in Florida thanks to increased safety belt usage.”

Research has found that lap and shoulder combination safety belts, when used, reduce
the risk of fatal injury to front-seat passenger car occupants by 45 percent and the risk
of moderate-to-critical injury by 50 percent (NHTSA, 2011). Florida’s first statewide
survey was completed in 1999 and an annual survey has been conducted every year
since. Florida's statewide safety belt use rate continues to trend upward every year
since the implementation of a primary safety belt law in 2009.
