Impaired Driving Initiatives
(DRE/ ARIDE/ DITEP )

The mission of the Impaired Driving Initiatives at Sam Houston State University is to save lives, prevent traffic injuries, and reduce traffic-related health care and other economic costs by promoting and administering the Drug Evaluation and Classification Program (DEC/DRE), the Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) course, and the Drug Impairment Training for Educational Professionals (DITEP) course. The DRE, ARIDE, and DITEP courses use national curriculums.
