Post Date:December 28, 2017 2:20 PM

The best choice you can make this holiday season is to never get behind the wheel while under the influence. By following the tips below, you can do your part to help the City achieve its Vision Zero goal of reducing traffic deaths and serious injuries on our streets to zero.

  • Assign a designated driver so you may enjoy your holidays responsibly. Never drive under the influence. 4265 TAM Holiday Flyer 2017_Final_WEB
