Tie One On For Safety

TIE ONE ON FOR SAFETY®

Tie One On For Safety® is MADD’s longest running Designated Driver Campaign.

Now in its 35th year, Tie One On for Safety® originates from the phrase “tie one on,” which is slang for drinking alcohol.

At MADD, we use the phrase to remind everyone that drinking and driving don’t mix. And to always designate a non-drinking driver.

Every holiday season, from November 1 through December 31, MADD asks you to display a MADD ribbon in a visible location to remind everyone to always designate a non-drinking driver. That message is especially important when holiday travel, parties and family gatherings put more people on the roads.

This year, MADD and National Presenting Sponsor Waymo are celebrating the 35th Anniversary of the Designated Driver.  You can help us create a nation of No More Victims by always taking personal responsibility for getting yourself and your loved ones home safely.

HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE IN TIE ONE ON FOR SAFETY®?

You can help by tying one on for safety this holiday season – display a MADD red ribbon, magnet, or decal on your vehicle.

And remember:

  • Put safety before the party, plan ahead and always designate a non-drinking driver
  • Never ride with someone who is impaired
  • Choose to be the non-drinking designated driver
  • Host parties that include mocktails and other non-alcoholic beverages and provide alternate transportation or accommodations for guests who choose to drink

Together, we can put an end to this 100 percent preventable crime and make this holiday season safer for our loved ones on the roadways.
