RADD Program

RADD Designated Drivers Program


Drunk driving crashes are 100% preventable.

RADD® is committed to eliminating the root causes of drunk driving crashes.


RADD is the Entertainment Industry's Voice for Road Safety. Their  goal is to reduce deaths and injuries across all age groups by increasing road safety awareness and promoting sober driving.

Alcohol related crashes continue to be a leading killer of college-aged young adults. RADD (Recording Artists Against Drunk Driving) has been the leader in developing designated driver and prevention programs to help combat this issue. 

In 2009, RADD partnered with UCI Health Education to obtain a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) to continue development of university-based designated driver initiatives, as a result, CSUSM is designated as a campus partner.
