The Coalition for Prevention and Awareness in LA Metro (CoPALM) collaborated with seven restaurants to launch the Table Top Campaign (TTC) for the New Year’s holiday. CoPALM’s Table Top Campaign disseminated approximately 400 coasters with anti-drunk driving messaging in English and Spanish. The materials reminded customers to drink responsibly and practice safe driving habits during this recent major drinking holiday.
Driving with any amount of alcohol in our bloodstream can negatively impact our ability to drive. Therefore, it is important to acknowledge the harmful effects of alcohol on our body as well as the potential danger that we put passengers, motorists, pedestrians, ourselves, and others in, due to driving under the influence. Safe driving requires the ability to concentrate, make ethical judgments, and react quickly. With the Table Top Campaign, CoPALM aims to address the consequences of drunk driving and impaired decision-making due to alcohol use.
The Table Top Campaign is a project that was first launched in Spring 2019 and aims to address the consequences of drunk driving. The campaign’s efforts focus on areas of Los Angeles that have a large alcohol outlet concentration. Since launching the Table Top Campaign, CoPALM has partnered with 34 businesses throughout SPA-4 and disseminated approximately 4,000 materials collectively. The coalition has been working hard to launch more campaigns, targeting holidays where the majority of the public tend to drink and continues to grow quickly in partnerships with local businesses.
