Strategies and Activities - Motor Vehicle Crash Injury & Death

Overview

Prevention Resources

 

In cooperation with the Governor’s Highway Safety Program (GHSP), the lead agency for West Virginia’s participation in federally mandated and funded highway safety improvement measures, the West Virginia Violence and Injury Prevention Program (WVVIPP) will analyze the impact of the state’s existing DUI Enforcement Programs, Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over, Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving, Students Against Drunk Driving (SADD) and Checkpoint Strikeforce.
The sub-activities that will be conducted to support this strategy include:

  • Finding strategies to help eliminate: 1) DUI, 2) underage drinking, 3) street racing, 4) speeding, 5) aggressive driving, 6) driving with a suspended or revoked license, and 7) hit-and-run crashes; and
  • Conducting research of possible strategies to decrease and prevent motor vehicle crash injury and death; and
  • Developing best practice documents or recommendations for the GHSP.

The WVVIPP will work collaboratively with the Governor’s Highway Safety Program to reduce motor vehicle crash injury and fatalities, along with decreasing the incidence of alcohol-related motor vehicle crash injury and death rates in West Virginia.
