Wouldn’t it feel good to do something that has the potential to save lives?

You can if driving under the influence has affected your life in a personal or work-related way.

Sharing your experience as a speaker for the Impaired Driving Impact Panel of Island County is a community service that can powerfully connect with people and help prevent needless injuries and deaths on our roads.

Speakers are the heart of IDIPIC’s heart-to-heart organization and impacts local court-ordered residents, Whidbey driver’s education students, their parents and the general public.

North Whidbey panels are held once a month in Hayes Hall 137 in the Oak Harbor Library building. The two-hour interactive presentations are open to the public and free for those not court- or attorney-ordered.

They are also held aboard the naval air station as stand alone safety stand downs as reserved by tenant commands.

We’re together on the roads; let’s be together in the cause to keep our roads safe from DUI.
