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 heightens 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 in its programs to make Illinois roadways safer;
  • AAIM supports strict enforcement of laws and appropriate legislation.

NEW! 3-D Program

AAIM's 3D Program (Dangerous Driving Decisions) has been well received at high schools and colleges. AAIM recognizes our ever-changing world of technology and the dangers that are imposed when electronic devices are used while driving. (Cell phones, texting and i-pods...etc.)

3D Pledge!

  • Dangerous:
    I pledge not to drive DANGEROUSLY.
  • Driving:
    I pledge not to text and DRIVE.
  • Decisions:
    I DECIDE not to drink and drive.

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.

Congratulations to our 2011 Top Cops!

Since 1990, AAIM has conducted an annual survey of Illinois police departments to give recognition to the most productive departments and police officers. AAIM not only praises these departments and individual officers, but we also want to encourage them to keep up the fight against drunk driving and it has paid off. The most important deterrent to drunk driving is law enforcement.
