The Hardcore Drunk Driver is a term established by the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility in order to put a tangible face to the commonalities of the most dangerous drivers on the road: repeat, high BAC, alcohol-dependent drivers who drink and drive again and again.
Arrest and Sentencing Record
The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility is a national, not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to fighting drunk driving and underage drinking. For more than a decade, The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility has established itself as an industry leader in identifying, researching, and creating resources that help criminal justice professionals address the hardcore drunk driving issue in their communities. In this area, their goal is to assist law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, probation and parole departments, and treatment providers in the swift identification, certain punishment, and effective treatment of hardcore drunk drivers.
Building on the foundation established with its National Hardcore Drunk Driver Project and with guidance provided by a national panel of criminal justice experts, The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility created the Judicial Education Project, which promotes a multi-disciplinary, system-wide approach to the hardcore drunk driver issue.
In support of their leadership efforts and our mutual commitment to driving effective programs that address hardcore drunk drivers, SCRAM Systems is pleased to share The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility Hardcore Drunk Driving Judicial Education Project resource guides for downloading that were developed for judges, prosecutors, and probation and parole officers.
