The Toronto Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), will be holding an event at Yonge-Dundas Square on Thursday, June 29th from 11am – 5pm.
The “Choose Your Ride” event will help raise public awareness about the dangerous consequences of driving impaired by alcohol or drugs. With everyone looking forward to the Canada Day long weekend, this is a great time to remind everyone about the risks of operating any motor vehicle – not just cars, but boats and atvs as well – while under the influence of alcohol and or drugs.
The event will feature a number of vehicles: a taxi, police cruiser, an ambulance, fire truck, a TTC bus, a hearse, and a crashed car. MADD volunteers and representatives of the other services participating will provide information about impaired driving, and encourage visitors to plan ahead when they know they will be drinking. We will also be handing out MADD Red Ribbons and collecting donations for our Chapter.
