Victim Impact Panel

A Victim Impact Panel (VIP) is a community-based meeting for victims/witnesses to describe the experiences they or loved ones have endured due to the actions of drunken drivers. A victim impact panel consists of a few people who were injured, or had a loved one injured or killed in a crash involving a drunken driver. Panel members explain how the crash has impacted their lives. DUI offenders can be required to attend the meetings as part of their court sentences. The panel aims to be non-judgmental and speaks about the consequences of drunken driving in an attempt to change behaviors and attitudes. Many communities use victim impact panels as one sanction against DUI offenders to increase drunk drivers’ understanding of the consequences of their actions.
