  • PCI to Host Forum on the Dangers of Impaired Driving
  • WASHINGTON — On Monday, December 4, the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) will host a forum featuring industry leaders and key stakeholders discussing the perils of impaired driving and solutions to make our roads safer.

    According to the National Safety Council, the US recently faced the worst two-year increase in motor vehicle deaths in more than 50 years. Impaired driving is one of the many factors believed to be contributing to the recent increase in auto crash frequency. While Americans generally understand driving drugged, drunk, or distracted is dangerous, many do not understand that these hazards are contributing to more vehicle crashes and fatalities. The panel will discuss the challenges and opportunities to address the dangers of impaired driving to make our roads safer.

     WHO:               Michael L. Brown, Chief of Police, City of Alexandria, Virginia

    Catherine Chase, Vice President of Governmental Affairs, Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety
