Launch of the #SaveOurLives Drink Driving Prevention Campaign

The International Alliance for Responsible Drinking (IARD), Self-Regulating Alcohol Industry Forum (SAIF), and the Namibian Police (NAMPOL) hosted a media briefing on March 17, 2016 to launch the #SaveOurLives drink driving prevention campaign. The briefing was attended by representatives from 23 organizations and seven media outlets. A highlight of the event was a moving presentation by Julian Roos, a victim who was left paralyzed by a drink driving crash, as he shared his story with the audience.

The media briefing also served as an opportunity to distribute certificates of completion to traffic police who completed training on the use of the breathalyzers. A train-the-trainer workshop facilitated by Dräger South Africa was held on February 16 and 17 for seven law enforcement officials. Trained officials then conducted refresher trainings for traffic police throughout Namibia. Evidentiary breath testing was removed from operations in Namibia in 2013 due to a court challenge on the legality of the equipment. IARD and its partners in the drink driving project were instrumental in pushing for the completion of the process to reintroduce evidentiary breath testing, which was finalized in December 2015 when the use of breathalyzers was approved and gazetted by parliament. NAMPOL will conduct regular alcohol checkpoints as part of the #SaveOurLives campaign, beginning ahead of the Easter holidays.

IARD is the lead coordinator for the drink driving initiative in Namibia, which began in 2015 as a part of the Beer, Wine and Spirits Producers’ Commitments to Reduce Harmful Drinking. IARD has partnered with SAIF to implement the initiative. Program partners include Namibia Police, National Road Safety Committee, Motor Vehicle Accident Fund, Private Sector Road Safety Fund, and Windhoek City Police.
