‘Strike Out Drunk Driving’ event held in East Providence

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Mothers Against Drunk Driving held an event Saturday at the East Providence Lanes called “Strike Out Drunk Driving.”

The event is part of the organizations Red Ribbon Campaign.

MADD reminds everyone that some of the most dangerous times of the year on the roadways is between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.

“A lot of individuals will be out at people’s houses. People need to be thinking about what they need to be doing to get themselves home safe and to keep other people safe as well.” – Eric Creamer, Executive Director of MADD Rhode Island.

As with every holiday season, MADD is asking the public to place signature red ribbons in visible locations on cars to serve as a reminder to always designate a non-drinking driver.
