ABOUT US

U in the Driver Seat was created in order to promote peer-to-peer education on the risks of impaired driving. This initiative was inspired from the highly successful Teens in the Driver Seat© which began over 10 years ago aiming to reduce the large amount of teenage deaths due to car accidents.

U in the DrUDS-smalliver Seat seeks to give college students the tools and information in order to help them educate one another about the dangers of driving which often including driving under the influence. Each program is unique to the college it is located at. Additionally, UDS does not follow any set curriculum allowing students the opportunity to personalize the program to their own distinct collegiate cultures and environments. Despite the diversity of our program our ultimate goal is the same – reduce the number of college students involved in car accidents.

With the support of the Texas Department of Transportation the Texas A&M Transportation Institute has been able to expand the program statewide. Read more by visiting our About Us page below.
