It’s a Celebration!!

Posted: November 10, 2011 in Uncategorized

There are so many things to celebrate in life. Little things and big things. Next week, we get to celebrate a big thing here at MADD Nebraska and we want to share it with you!

On November 16th, we will be celebrating five years of MADD’s Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving. For five years we have been working to eliminate drunk driving through supporting the heroes in law enforcement that keep our roads safe, working to require convicted drunk drivers to blow before they go with an ignition interlock, and looking toward a future where the cars are the cure.  We will also be kicking off the 2011 holiday crackdown on drunk driving with our annual Tie One On For Safety campaign. The campaign asks all motorists to display a red ribbon on their car in support of law enforcement crackdown efforts and as a pledge to drive safe, sober and buckled up throughout the holiday season.

We will be celebrating both of these events with a press conference hosted by Governor Dave Heineman and First Lady Sally Ganem at their residence. In honor of the fifth anniversary of the Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving, MADD will be releasing a Rating of the States, and during this press conference we will be annoucing what Nebraska’s ranking is. The ranking provides us with a gauge, determining where we stand in the fight against drunk driving, revealing our strengths, and showing us where we have room for improvement. We invite you to join us for the press conference to hear the announcement for yourself at 10:00 am on November 16th at the Governor’s Residence in Lincoln! Or just do what you are doing and keep reading our blog, we will reveal the ranking and talk more about how it was determined next week!

Hope to see you all there for the celebration!
