U in the Driver Seat Home


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.
