Traffic Safety All-Stars

Every day, almost 30 people in the U.S. die in drunk-driving crashes. That's an average of one person approximately every 50 minutes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Now in its second year, the Traffic Safety All-Star awards program was created by ICJI as a way to recognize law enforcement officers who are going above and beyond to keep road users and their communities safe by working to combat impaired driving.

To be named a Traffic Safety All-Star, the officer must have made at least 20 OWI arrests during the previous year and participated in one of the state’s targeted enforcement campaigns, like Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. Every year, several leadership awards are presented to those aiding in the fight against impaired driving.
