Project Red Ribbon

You are here:///Project Red Ribbon

Do you have your red ribbon yet? MADD Canada’s iconic red ribbon symbolizes the importance of always driving sober and honours the innocent victims of impaired driving. Thought great strides have been made over the years to reduce impaired driving, it continues to be a deadly problem on Canada’s roads. Continued awareness efforts are vital. Our Project Red Ribbon campaign helps keep the sober driving message top of mind during the busy holiday season. With parties and celebrations plentiful, the risk for impaired driving is especially high. Our red ribbon is a small but powerful symbol of the wearer’s commitment to sober driving. From November 1st , 2019 to January 6, 2020, MADD Canada Chapters and Community Leaders will distribute over a million ribbons and red ribbon car decals to Canadians to wear and display as a reminder to:

  • Never drive impaired or ride with an impaired driver.
  • Plan ahead if you’re going to be drinking or consuming cannabis or other drugs. Call an Uber or a cab, arrange a designated driver, take public transit or stay the night.
  • Call 911 you see a driver you suspect is impaired. For information on the signs of an impaired driver and what to do, visit our Campaign 911 page.

Red ribbons and car decals are available through the MADD Canada web site, Chapters and Community Leaders, and participating sponsor outlets.
