On Friday, Mothers Against Drunk Driving launched their Red Ribbon Campaign. According to President MADD St.Thomas Karen Holtby, this is their biggest event. She said St.Thomas Police helped out with their event.
Holtby says the red ribbon is significant to their promotion "Tie One On". She says this is a really bad time of year for drunk drivers, an the ribbon represents getting home safely.
Holtby herself is a victim - her nephew was killed at the age of 19 by a drunk driver - and says their purpose is to raise awareness, spread the message and support victims.
