Victim Impact Panel

Victim Impact Panel

Following an OWI, driving under the influence, or distracted driving incident, our Victim Impact Panels offer a unique educational experience aimed at preventing future accidents and redirecting risky behavior on the road. During these sessions, individuals directly impacted by crashes caused by impaired or distracted driving share their powerful stories. By providing firsthand accounts, the panel seeks to illuminate the tangible consequences of risky decisions, fostering awareness and encouraging responsible choices behind the wheel.
