The Jackson County Traffic Safety Task Force along with many community partners joined together to create the ‘Choose Your Ride’ half taxi/half police car. The Choose Your Ride car serves as a mobile messaging campaign to remind the public to never drink and drive and always choose a safe ride home.

Despite a nearly 50 percent decline in drunk driving deaths since MADD was founded in 1980, over 10,000 people are killed by drunk drivers and another 290,000 are injured in drunk driving crashes every year. In fact, two out of three people will be involved in a drunk driving crash in their lifetime. Sadly, every two minutes, a person is injured in a drunk driving crash. Join us in creating a future of No More Victims®.
