RADD

An official Who's DES Tonight? partner

Recording Artists, Actors and Athletes Against Drink Driving RADD creates and uses celebrity-driven messages on radio, on TV, and in print media to raise awareness of the dangers associated with drink driving and to promote safe alternatives. RADD is not anti-alcohol nor is it anti-drinking - it simply tries to make youth and young adults more aware of the dangers of drink driving and how the use of common-sense and planning ahead can help to avoid senseless tragedies.

The facts about youth drink driving in Australia are pretty sobering, especially when you consider that drink driving is 100% preventable. Drink driving in just the 18-25 year old demographic costs the community $1.2 billion annually. Almost half those killed in drink-driving crashes are innocent victims ... someone's husband, wife, brother, sister, mother, father, daughter, son, partner, or friend.

RADD has now been running in Australia since the beginning of 2004. RADD’s patron is Sir Paul McCartney.
