About the Coalition

The Florida Impaired Driving Coalition (FIDC) was formed in 2009 to identify and prioritize the state’s most pressing impaired driving issues and develop a plan to maximize the State’s ability to impact these crashes. FIDC members include representatives from agencies and organizations with a working knowledge and understanding of the various components of Florida’s impaired driving system and how the components interrelate.
