SGI ACKNOWLEDGED FOR IMPAIRED DRIVING CAMPAIGNS

SGI has been recognized for showing that a serious message can be delivered creatively and effectively.

Over the last two years, SGI has received 12 provincial, national and international awards for its impaired driving advertising campaigns.

"Advertising is a very important part of our integrated approach to making Saskatchewan roads safer," Minister responsible for SGI June Draude said. "Along with enforcement, SGI strives to impact motorists in positive ways to help change behaviour and decrease the number of injuries and fatalities."

SGI's overall goal is to educate the public about the hazards and consequences of drinking and driving as well as help them make responsible choices.

"What you will find at the heart of all SGI messaging is to always plan a safe ride home," Draude said. "We want people to know how they're going to get home before they take that first drink."

Advertising is one aspect of SGI's comprehensive traffic safety strategy, which focuses on addressing road safety issues through community programs, education, legislation and infrastructure improvements.
