Tie One On For Safety Campaign
Kicks Off in Tennessee!

Some of the most dangerous days of the year on our nation's roadways are between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day.  That is why every holdiay season MADD asks you to display a MADD red ribbon in a visible location to remind others to always designate a non-drinking driver.

Click below for a list of locations in your area where ribbons will be available beginning November 21, 2014.
East TN
Middle TN
West TN

Click here for a flier you can use to help spread the word about the campaign.  Get permission to hang the flier at your workplace, college campus, local stores, or anywhere people might need to be reminded of the dangers of drunk driving.

Beginning December 1 to December 15, post an image to show how you've displayed your MADD red ribbon with #myMADDribbon, #tennessee, #MADDTN on Facebook and Twitter and show your support for the campaign!

  • Because it is illegal and dangerous, I pledge not to drink alcohol before age 21 or use other drugs.
  • I pledge not to ride with someone who has been drinking alcohol.
  • If I find myself in a situation where I feel unsafe or uncomfortable, I pledge to call an adult for a safe ride home.
