MADD TIE ONE ON FOR SAFETY
The MADD Tie One On For Safety Holiday Campaign kicks off the festive season by reminding us that drinking and driving don’t mix. From November 16 to December 31, their MADD Tie One On For Safety Holiday Campaign urges you to designate a sober driver and to hand over your keys. It’s more important to get home late and alive, than to risk driving drunk or even buzzed.
Keep your holiday celebrations enjoyable by preventing tragedy. When you designate, you are more likely to get home safely to the ones you love. Every year, hundreds of families receive a knock at the door informing them a loved one was taken from them due to a senseless decision made under the influence of alcohol. The decision is 100 percent preventable.
Make it a habit when celebrating.
- Give your sober driver a red ribbon.
- Hostesses provide non-alcoholic drinks for sober drivers, so your guests get home safely.
- Offer the spare bedroom or sofa in a pinch.
- Take turns being the sober driver.
- Keep a reliable taxi or driver service on your phone.
