The Victims’ Impact Panel (VIP) is a powerful program aimed at combating drunk driving. This program offers a unique perspective to the drinking driver, presenting in a very personal way the far-reaching effects of the choice to drink and drive.
Through panel presentations, the audience experiences the impact of drunk driving through the eyes of:
A victim: “The good news was that our daughter was killed instantly.”
A rescue professional: “It’s the faces of the children killed by drunk drivers that you never forget.”
An offender: “Not a day goes by that I don’t think about the lady I killed. And it was all because I chose to drive after drinking.”
Drinking and driving is taking innocent lives and leaving behind loved ones who must forever grieve their losses. This is happening in epidemic proportions, statewide and nationwide. It is the number one killer of our young people. But unlike other fatal epidemics, drinking and driving has a cure. We don’t need research to find the answer. The answer is found in those who are forever changed because of someone’s decision to drive after drinking.
Who Attends VIP?
Under order of the courts, the DUI offender is presented with the direct results of his/her choice to drink and drive. At the time of sentencing, the offender is assigned to a local program. They are expected to attend on that date and will only be allowed to reschedule in case of an emergency. VIP is statewide so every court has access to a program.
