The Florida DUI Challenge Initiative rewards law enforcement agencies that dedicate a significant level of resources to impaired driving enforcement, awareness and training. The goal of this program is to reduce the number of alcohol-related crashes, fatalities and injuries that occur in Florida by increasing DUI enforcement and public awareness of the state’s alcohol-related crash program.
