Tie One On For Safety

The time period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day includes some of the most dangerous days of the year on our nation’s roadways.  That’s why every holiday season, MADD asks drivers to put a MADD red ribbon in a visible location on their vehicle as a reminder to always designate a non-drinking driver.

Started in 1986, Tie One On For Safety® is MADD’s longest running and most visible public awareness project. The name Tie One On For Safety comes from the phrase “tie one on,” which is slang for drinking alcohol. But at MADD we use the phrase to remind everyone that drinking and driving don’t mix.

This year, we’re giving you the opportunity to order a Tie One On For Safety ribbon online for free! (But if you are feeling generous and want to make a donation of $5 or more to help cover the cost of the ribbons and shipping, we would greatly appreciate it!)  We also have Tie One On For Safety car magnets available with a $10 minimum donation.

Thank you for helping us raise awareness about the dangers of drunk driving this holiday season by Tying One On For Safety!  And thanks to Nationwide Insurance for their generous support of Tie One On For Safety!
