Massachusetts Designated Driver Program "Good to Drive?"
Every year alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes in Massachusetts kill nearly 200 people and seriously injure thousands more. Many of these deaths and injuries could be prevented through the greater use of designated drivers. The program is designed to promote the use of designated drivers and reduce drunk-driving related deaths and injuries in Massachusetts. The program was launched in Boston and Worcester in June and is now being rolled out to additional communities. In conjunction with the extended roll-out, the Lieutenant Governor has recorded a PSA about the program. To learn more about the program, log onto www.mass.gov/goodtodrive.
