Welcome to AAIM Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists

The Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists (AAIM) is an independent non-profit organization founded in 1982 by families who had lost loved ones in drunk driving crashes. AAIM was Illinois' first citizen action group dedicated to the fight against driving under the influence.

The Mission of the Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists (AAIM) is to prevent deaths and injuries caused by intoxicated or distracted motorists and to assist impaired driving crash victims and their families in Illinois.

To achieve its purpose,

  • AAIM creates awareness and educates the public about the devastation caused by impaired driving, underage drinking and other dangerous driving decisions;
  • AAIM assists impaired driving crash victims and their families emotionally, financially and during court proceedings;
  • AAIM encourages community involvement to make Illinois roadways safer;
  • AAIM supports strict enforcement of laws and appropriate legislation.

Be a DrunkBuster

AAIM is justifiably proud of the DrunkBuster program which has received national publicity and acknowledgement. To encourage drivers with cellular phones to report erratic driving to police, AAIM initiated the "Drunkbusters" program in 1990. AAIM gives $100 to tipsters whose calls lead to DUI arrests. To date, the AAIM DrunkBuster Program has paid out over $486,600 to concerned citizens resulting in the arrest of over 4,866 impaired motorists. This program is funded entirely through court fines paid by DUI offenders.
