According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports nearly one-third of traffic related deaths in the United States is due to alcohol-impaired driving. Holiday season is here and the threat of increased alcohol-related traffic deaths and injuries is looming again. There are ways that we can reduce this suffering or stop it from happening. I am sure everybody knows how to do it but will we act on it?

Thank you to Sgt. Brian Hoelscher, Waterloo and Evansdale Police Departments, area principals and teachers, and all the students and families who made our recent school outreach program a success! We visited more than 40 first, second and third grade classrooms to talk about traffic safety. Our hope is that learning now will set our children up for a lifetime of safety!
