The Livingston Police Department and the Livingston Health Department are joining forces with Mother's Against Drunk Driving to present an informative campaign on Dec. 5.
According to the MADD website, the time period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day is the most dangerous time of the year to drive. That’s why every holiday season, MADD asks drivers to put a MADD red ribbon in a visible location on their vehicle as a reminder to drive safe, sober and buckled up.
The ribbon is a symbol of the motorist’s pledge to drive safe, sober and buckled-up during the holidays and it will remind other to do the same. The holidays are the heaviest travel times and a time when too many alcohol related accidents occur.
The departments invite residents to stop by the Livingston Public Library on Dec. 5, between 3-4:30 p.m. to learn more about MADD and the campaign against drunk driving. Members of the departments will be on hand to kick off the public awareness campaign.
