Gillman is proud to sponsor Project Roadblock for this Holiday Season!



Did you know that alcohol-impaired driving accounts for nearly one-third of motor vehicle crash fatalities during the holiday week of December 26th through New Year's Eve?  That's why Gillman Automotive is proud to sponsor “Project Roadblock” this year with KPRC Channel 2. 

Project Roadblock is an initiative that’s been running on KPRC since 2004. Now in its 14th year, Project Roadblock is a multi-platform drunk driving prevention campaign and the largest annual station-supported initiative of a single PSA campaign.  Sponsored by TVB, NHTSA, and the Ad Council, the Project Roadblock campaign continues to demonstrate the power to reach people in the local community. Since then in combination with other drinking and driving prevention efforts, there has been a 40% decline in drunk driving deaths per day during the Holidays and a 28% decline on New Year's Eve. However, fatalities are up 1.7% since 2015. So, continued support of Project Roadblock is still important to help spread awareness and keep our roads safe. 



With everyone's help this upcoming December and continued awareness, the road to safety continues. We hope that everyone has a safe and happy holiday and will Drink Responsibly and Drive Responsibly. 

Have a Happy New Year from our Gillman Family to yours!  See you in 2018!
