Zero Tolerance Means Zero Chances.

Join the Campaign

You Drink & Drive. You Lose. a campaign created to prevent impaired driving and to help reach the national goal of reducing alcohol-related traffic fatalities to not more than 11,000 by the year 2005 targets three high-risk audiences, including 15- to 20-year-olds. The campaign specifically addresses the underage drinking population with a simple message: Zero Tolerance Means Zero Chances.

What You Can Do

Partner with young people in your communities to create a powerful message throughout America that underage drinking and driving is a crime and will not be tolerated. Use the Zero Tolerance Means Zero Chances Action Kit to plan your local campaigns and decide what type of initiatives will work best to raise greater awareness in your community about the deadly consequences of underage drinking and driving.

The Zero Tolerance Means Zero Chances Action Kit was designed with assistance from NOYS (National Organizations for Youth Safety) with the goal to help support and expand the hard work already being done nationwide by private and public traffic safety partners. The Action Kit, designed for youth leaders and their adult advisors, will give you ideas on how to become involved with youth-led zero tolerance activities. Kit components include a program brochure, a media guide complete with sample media materials, a resource guide, fact sheets, logo slicks and a camera-ready flier to hand out to young people.
