BRENTWOOD - Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) members joined forces with Nassau police today to unveil a new campaign to keep drunken drivers off the roads this holiday weekend.
County Executive Ed Mangano (R-Nassau) says the "Choose Your Ride Vehicle" demonstrates that residents have two choices: a cab ride home or a ride in a police car to be booked and prosecuted. Driving up, the vehicle looks like a police car, but from behind it resembles a taxi.
Last year, 29 Long Island families lost loved ones to drunken drivers. They're reminding everyone to plan ahead and find a safe way home.
Last Memorial Day, Nassau police say they made 93 DWI arrests.
