Why Did We Start This Campaign?
REPORT: Prevention of DUI and Alcohol Risks on College Campuses.
Studies confirm the benefit of incorporating enforcement interventions into programs in colleges and communities directed at alcohol use among young people.
Publicized and intensive enforcement of minimum drinking age and drinking and driving laws as part of campus programs have led to significant reductions of BAC drinking and driving among teenagers and young adults.
The leadership and partnership of law enforcement on community and campus alcohol prevention coalitions is essential for success, mutual support, and consistent coordination of messaging and strategies.
The Virginia BuzzKill – Alcohol Under 21, Your Party’s Over campaign has been made possible through funding from the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, Virginia ABC, and Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services. Materials for the campaign were adapted with permission from a program of the Drug Free Action Alliance.
Thanks to the following campus law enforcement agencies who helped us launch this effort: Christopher Newport University, Hampton University, J Sergeant Reynolds Community College, Norfolk State University, Tidewater Community Colleges University of Richmond, Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia Union University.
This campaign was funded through a DMV Highway Safety Grant.
