(WHNT) – News 19 is partnering with The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), TVB, and the Ad Council for a 19th year for Project Roadblock.

The project is meant to inspire a dialogue about drinking and driving and provide resources to get people home safely during the holidays.

Drunk driving kills about 32 people a day in the United States, according to the NHTSA. That’s about one person every 45 minutes, over 10,000 people a year.

In Alabama in 2020, 387 traffic fatalities were alcohol-impaired driving related, making up about 41% of the state’s total traffic fatalities for the year.

This year, News 19 is proud to support Project Roadblock! Along with Nexstar stations across the country, News 19 will be making a push to help make sure our community’s roads are safe.

Project Roadblock has led to a decrease of over 1,500 annual fatalities since the initiative
began in 2004.

To help keep you safe and happy for the holidays, News 19 has compiled a list of ways you can get home so you don’t drink and drive.


Uber is a transportation company with an app that allows patrons to call a ride from wherever they are, depending on availability.

Lyft is another transportation company that allows you to hail a ride from an app on your phone depending on availability near you.
