History

In 2001, recording artist Jackie Harrington founded 1 Fox 2 Productions as a non-profit arts and music education organization. The program became a thriving success for over a decade. However, after years of working with the community and learning how devastating the effects of drunk driving had been to so many families, particularly here in Travis County, Harrington began to shift her focus. Our organization then began working with drug and alcohol agency Consult ED in an attempt to help individuals directly affected by the consequences of substance abuse.

Since that time, Harrington has completed the University of Texas’ paralegal program and has partnered with providers who are licensed through State Health Services as a DWI educational program instructors. Harrington regularly collaborates with local licensed attorneys who help supervise the program and offer their services to help get program members back on their feet, often working pro-bono.

Accreditation

Since 2012, Consult ED’s Substance Abuse Program has partnered with 1 Fox 2 Productions, offering drug and alcohol education programs, accredited through TSHS (Texas State Health Services). This program serves to teach individuals how to develop a plan for positive life changes, the potential consequences of drug and alcohol abuse, and the lasting effects of drunk driving. Instructors provide completion certificates—15 hr. for drug offenders and 12 hr. for DWI offenders—which fulfil state requirements to reinstate a suspended license.

Our accreditation is recognized by and works in conjunction with the City of Austin, Travis County Justice System, Department of Public Safety, and the Department of Child Protective Services among others

We Encourage You To Become An Activist with Us Today

1 Fox 2 Productions has a concept. Since 2012 we have designed and implemented two State Approved innovative Drug and Alcohol Education programs. These programs have ultimately resulted in thousands of reinstated driver’s licenses in three surrounding cities, Houston, Dallas, and Round Rock, serving these communities and individuals and resulting in real change.
Our Vison is to add additional instructors, enhance the program with a Youth Tabaco Awareness license, and to serve the Spanish speaking community with our programs. We are also hoping to provide public, free-to-the-community lectures in the near future.

Please tell us how much you will give us to bring our vison to your city in cash endowment, City building, and operational funding to further execute this vision. No gift size is too small at helping to accomplish this goal.

Why There Is A Need

City records indicate that DWI arrests increased by nearly 24% over the past three years. As well, according to research done by MADD, 75% of people with suspended licenses from drunk-driving offences continue to drive. These numbers can be greatly improved by implementing proper forms of preventative education. Our program has a significate impact on the number of lives saved from repeat drunk driving offenders.
According to Jim Miller, former Municipal Judge, the number one reason people can’t find or maintain a job, is due to invalid driver’s licenses.

This leads to incredibly high recidivism rates for those unable to get help managing their lives, as they become trapped in a cycle of joblessness and incarceration. The impact of this cycle is felt throughout the entire community.

Why We Need You

Your support can make a big difference in sustaining our programs and helping us grow to fill the needs of surrounding counties and communities.

Our program, the 15 DOEP, 12 DWI the Driver Reinstatement Program, has helped to improve the lives and reduce unemployment for over 1,200 drivers annually. These are individuals completing programs and getting their licenses reinstated. Our numbers speak for themselves—we offer results, but we can’t continue to do so without the help of donners like you.

We feel that getting the community involved with the agency—instead of subsidizing the programs with fees—will help to further our impact. Not only would this allow more disadvantaged individuals to enroll in the program, but also help to foster a sense of community and brotherhood.

You’re about to help a lot of people

Every dollar donated to the 1 Fox to brings free DWI classes 40 people. But there’s more to it than that. Your impact is magnified by thousands of people who impacted by the resources that make the community safer, reduce crash fatalities not only related to drunk driving but illegal driving.

You Can help us Support them Further by

  • Promoting Public awareness on drunk driving because we dissimulate over 4000 brochures annually focusing on intervention.
  • Programs like Driver reinstatement Agency helps thousands of at risk individuals with their compliance requirements to become reinstated for legal driving
  • Reduce the number of fatalities caused by Drunk driving
  • Provide referrals to residential housing, DPS compliance and substance abuse education
  • Provide an outlet for completion of community service, online defensive driving, and resource directory that individuals may not otherwise or be aware of.

Objectives

We assist in reinstating suspended and illegal drivers—only after DWI education programs have been completed. We do this in order to reduce recidivism rates and future drunk driving accidents.

Additionally, this helps to remove employment barriers and thereby strengthen local families and communities.

Measures

The Driver Reinstatement Program requires annual reporting of enrolled students, progress of students completing of program, and evaluations of gained knowledge with pre-program and post-program examinations.

Occupational Driver’s License

If your driver’s license is suspended, expired, cancelled or revoked, let us help you get back on the road legally as soon as possible. If you are stopped while your driver’s license is suspended, you risk an arrest or ticket for driving while license invalid or suspended, and it can result in an additional driver’s license suspension and more surcharges (each conviction for driving while license suspended carries a $750.00 surcharge payable over three years).

Sometimes, our clients have multiple reasons for not being eligible for a Texas driver’s license. Sometimes, no occupational license is necessary because your license can be reinstated immediately by payment of money or by some other means. We will research your situation, and give you all of your options. Often, an occupational driver’s license is best and quickest solution. For example, an occupational license may be the only remedy because your suspension has a definite end date and cannot be removed until it expires. Sometimes, even though your suspension might be ended by payment of outstanding tickets and removal of traffic warrants, an occupational license will allow you to work and earn money in the interim to give you the time and funds necessary to resolve the outstanding issues.

License suspensions are either by the Texas Department of Public Safety, or by a court. DPS suspensions are referred to as departmental suspensions.

More Reasons to Need an Occupational-DL

Departmental suspensions can occur for a number of reasons, such as:

  • Unpaid surcharges (resulting from convictions for no license, driving while license suspended, no insurance or for a DWI)
  • Being convicted of at least four moving violations in any 12 -month period
  • Driving after your license is expired (inability to renew can result from outstanding ticket matters, such as one or more outstanding failures to appear or fines)
  • Getting a new conviction during a suspension or invalid period
  • Being uninsured and at fault in an accident
  • Breath or blood test refusal or failure following an arrest for driving while intoxicated
  • Unresolved matters from another state’
  • xpired driver’s license with other outstanding problems preventing renewal
  • During consultation you are provided with copies or your records and expert knowledge to take the necessary steps to reinstate your DL with or without our services.
