March 15 -21, 2020 is National Impaired Driving Prevention Awareness Week across Canada. MADD Canada is proud to join governments, law enforcement agencies and community organizations in raising awareness about the risks and consequences of impaired driving.
Impaired Driving Is NOT An Accident. Let’s Drop The ‘A’ Word
To highlight the entirely preventable nature of impaired driving, and the related crashes, deaths and injuries, MADD Canada and its National President Jaymie-Lyne Hancock have created a short video message titled “Drop the A Word” to encourage Canadians to avoid referring to impaired driving as an “accident”.
Help Us Share The Message!
Throughout Impaired Driving Prevention Week, MADD Canada will be using social media to raise awareness about the dangers and consequences of impaired driving, highlight the ways it can be prevented, and recognize the innocent victims of this crime. Follow us and share the sober driving message!
