Durham Regional Police, O.P.P., RCMP, Clarington Fire and Durham EMS were on hand to help Mothers Against Drunk Driving kick off their annual Red Ribbon campaign at Mosport International Raceway.
Project Red Ribbon was designed to raise awareness about the dangers of impaired driving, especially during the holiday season. By tying a ribbon on your vehicle’s antenna you are making a commitment to safe and sober driving.
Deputy Chief Elect Scott Burns asked everyone to work together to keep our roads safe this holiday season and to ensure your family and friends do the same. Members from 16 Division (Clarington) and DRP’s Traffic Services Branch were also on hand to answer any questions.
Michelle Crabb, President of MADD Durham, reminded everyone that drunk drivers kill four people and injure over 207 people everyday in Canada. Everyone should start the holiday season by tying on a red ribbon and finish each celebration safely.
The red ribbons are available for any size of donation and are to be displayed on your vehicle's antenna. They are available at the front counters of all Divisions in Durham Region after November 11.
