About Project Roadblock
Project Roadblock is a multiplatform drunk driving prevention campaign sponsored by TVB, NHTSA, and the Ad Council – and exclusive to local broadcast television stations. Every local broadcast TV station is encouraged to join, and you don’t have to be a TVB member to participate. Going strong into its 16th year, Project Roadblock continues to demonstrate the power of local broadcast television to influence, persuade and affect social behavior, as well as TV broadcasters’ commitment to the safety of their communities.
