Victim Impact Panel (VIP)

The Victim Impact Panel (VIP) is a program for offenders of Driving Under the Influence of alcohol or drugs.  The panels are a non-confrontational presentation given by victims of DUI crashes who speak about the impact the DUI crash has had on their lives.  The panel presents an often unheard perspective to DUI offenders.  Judges often include the requirement to attend a VIP as part of a sentence, in the hopes that offenders will benefit from learning first hand about the trauma, physical pain, emotional suffering and devastation, financial loss, anger and frustration that DUI victims and family members commonly experience.
