AAA Carolinas' Foundation for Traffic Safety and Columbia, SC city officials recently launched the citywide Report A Drunk Driver (RADD) reward campaign. The RADD initiative provides $100 to citizens reporting someone arrested and convicted of driving under the influence (DUI).
Citizens can report a driver they suspect is under the influence on Columbia streets by calling 911 and providing details about the vehicle, license plate and driver. Calls will be coded specifically for the RADD campaign, and $100 will be paid upon a DUI conviction.
"The Columbia Police Department is dedicated to deterring DUI related incidents. Lives are at risk when someone gets behind the wheel of a vehicle and drives while under the influence of alcohol or drugs," said Columbia Police Chief Ruben Santiago. "Our Traffic Safety Unit conducts several public safety checkpoints to keep roadways safe. The law is clear, do not drink and drive. Find a designated driver. If not, you will face the consequences," Santiago said.
The AAA Carolinas Foundation for Traffic Safety is a non-profit organization founded by AAA Carolinas and funded by AAA Carolinas' member contributions that works to promote traffic safety initiatives in North and South Carolina.
