Impaired Driving Initiatives

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, the Drug Impairment Training for Educational Professionals (DITEP) course, and the Drug Impairment Training for Texas Employers course (DITTE). The DRE, ARIDE, and DITEP courses use national curriculums. The DITTE course uses a state-specific curriculum.
