Florida

The Florida Students Against Destructive Decisions (FL SADD) program is coordinated by the State Coordinator, funded by a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation, and housed at Florida Public Safety Institute, a campus of Tallahassee Community College. This office provides statewide coordination and assistance to Florida's 200+ SADD chapters and works in cooperation with many state agencies, local school districts, law enforcement offices, and other state and community-based organizations. The collaboration and cooperation between the state and community-based organizations enhance the "Triangle of Caring" which is comprised of school, home, and community. FL SADD is dedicated to educating students, parents, and others in the community concerning the problems of underage drinking, impaired driving, seatbelt usage, driver training, speeding, and red light running. The FL SADD emphasizes traffic safety because traffic crashes are the #1 cause of death for teenagers in America. The purpose of FL SADD is to assist and encourage middle school and high school students to live safe, healthy, and substance-free lifestyles by creating chapters in their schools that support and promote positive decision-making. SADD promotes a "No-Use" message - no alcohol, tobacco, or illegal substances - through positive peer pressure, support, and activism.
