The Department of Transportation of North Dakota recently launched a new safety campaign to keep citizens of North Dakota from driving under the influence of alcohol. The Don’t Forget TODD, or “TO Designate a Driver”, campaign aims to reduce drunk driving cases.
To give options to those who drink, TODD makes use of various interactive media tools such as DUI enforcement alerts and “Safe Ride” texting. An intoxicated driver may simply text the name of his or her town to get contact information for a taxi.
TODD is accessible through a variety of internet social media such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. People can also sign up for email alerts to be informed of DUI enforcement. This interactive and social media concept focuses on informing, educating and helping individuals realize that there are alternatives to the deadly combination of drinking and driving.
The Don’t Forget TODD aims to remind an impaired individual to designate a driver or a sober friend to drive, or call a taxi to ensure a safe ride until he or she arrives at their destination. The official website of the campaign is http://www.dontforgettodd.com which contains safe driving tips, regional DUI efforts, information on cab businesses and various educational resources.
Setting up a similar TODD campaign in Minnesota would be a great idea to help reduce alcohol-related road accidents and the number of DWI cases. Minnesota drivers, particularly the younger population who drink, can benefit from the interactive and social media alerts of the campaign, while having the contact information of cab companies at their fingertips.
