The Highway Safety Office hopes the number will get people to think about all the consequences of drinking and driving as well as open a dialogue between friends. It is an approach to get attention and help prevent drunk driving. The main focus is targeting that 21-30 age group that seems to have a problem with drinking and driving. A caller selects to speak with a choice of persons who are unhappy about the predicament, and is educated about DUI consequences in a humorous manner.
