ICAP initiatives in Mexico continue to progress with police enforcement campaigns aimed at reducing drink driving.

As part of industry initiatives to reduce drink driving, Global Actions held a training in Puebla with the DIF Estatal de Puebla.

A government organization focused on social policy in poverty reduction and attention to vulnerable groups, DIF contributes to the integral development of the subject population welfare and full reintegration into society through actions of health, education, and income generation options.

"From the beginning of the project, ICAP has been working with the Puebla State Police Department of Road Safety along with Puebla municipal law enforcement,” said ICAP Consultant Bill Georges. “The project provides both training and equipment to enhance drink driving enforcement efforts.”

“ICAP is also working with law enforcement to improve data collection and analysis of both checkpoint/arrest and crash data so that more timely and accurate data is available which will assist in future drink driving prevention efforts,” said Global Actions Country Manager Mariana Guerra Rendon.

What’s Happening Next:

· Belgium: ICAP is holding the first Commitments Regional Workshop on February 21 and 22, 2013 in Brussels. CEOs of 13 of the world’s leading beer, wine, and spirits producers will discuss their collective commitment to 10 targeted actions in five areas over the next five years.
