Don’t drink and drive! The Department of Motor Vehicles’ Virginia Highway Safety O ce, the Virginia State Police and the Virginia Department of Transporta­tion are encouragin­g everyone to take the Highway Safety Challenge during April by following these calls to action:

1. Drive drug and alcohol-free
