Anti-impaired driving campaign coming to Surrey schools

Latest anti-impaired driving campaign is coming to Surrey schools in February.

Titled “No Tomorrow,” the 45-minute program explores how mixing alcohol and drugs with driving can have devastating and permanent consequences.

MADD Canada’s latest campaign  to schools across the country, with a stop in Surrey in February.

“One choice, one split-second decision, and your life can change forever,” said MADD Canada Regional Manager Tracy Crawford. “We want students to understand how driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs can impact their lives. We want to motivate them to always make the right decision, and protect themselves and their friends from impaired driving.”

”Impaired driving takes a “disproportionate toll on young people.” MADD Canada says.

“Traffic crashes are the largest single cause of death among 16-25 year olds, and more than 50 per cent of those crashes involve alcohol and/or drugs,” the organization states. “Road and other crash deaths were the leading cause of death for young people between the ages of 16 and 25 years in 2014, and we estimate more than half of those crashes involved alcohol and/or drugs.”
