A victim impact panel is a 2-hour panel discussion where individuals who had lost loved ones speak to the audience about the impacts drinking and driving has had on their lives and/or the lives of their family members. The goal of the panel is to serve as a deterrent for the audience members from ever getting behind the wheel after drinking. There is typically a fee of up to $50 to attend the panel. Audience members are tested for the presence of alcohol before being allowed to enter. If any alcohol is detected, admission to the panel is denied.
