The law enforcement executives who met to discuss the issues of drugs, driving, and youth were clearly well-versed in the subject matter. They indicated that training, coordination and cooperation are fundamental to having successful programs. They stated that smaller agencies need to develop better interagency cooperation and pool their resources if they are to continue to have effective efforts. They suggested that successful programs should be cataloged and made available to law enforcement agencies wishing to expand and enhance their efforts regarding drugs, driving and youth.
Reducing the carnage
on the Nation's streets and highways attributed to impaired driving depends
on comprehensive programs involving all segments of the community, supported
with local, state and federal resources.
NHTSA will continue to partner with other Federal agencies, national organizations, and the law enforcement community to address the issues of impaired (drugs and alcohol) driving, particularly among youth.
