The goal of the Cypress Creek VFD Driver Safety Awareness Program is to increase awareness of the deadly effects that alcohol, drugs and poor judgement have on a person's ability to drive in a safe manner. The program utilizes a powerful visual aid, the Driver Safety Awareness Trailer, that shows the grim results of driving while under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
The Driver Safety Awareness Trailer consists of a vehicle involved in a fatal accident on February 6, 2002, mounted on a tandem axle trailer. The vehicle is mounted on the trailer in it's final position which was on it's side and wrapped around a tree. The trailer allows this powerful visual aid to be towed to area schools and state functions such as MADD or DARE events.

The Driver Safety Awareness program materialized when a family member of one of the occupants expressed the desire that others learn from this trajedy. Through community support and sponsorship from several businesses, the trailer was created.
