Campaign Safe & Sober Planners contain traffic safety information on numerous topics. Only one planner per year will include the statistical Traffic Safety Facts and the State Legislative Fact Sheets. These fact sheets will only be included in the planner nearest to the date the fact sheets are printed for initial distribution. This will help reduce planner costs and redundancy. The fact sheets will still be available on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Web site ( at all times.
