Tie one on this holiday season

Tie a red ribbon on

Quincy's mayor and police chief hope you tie one on this holiday season ... a red ribbon that is.

Project Red Ribbon kicked off Monday morning with Mayor Kyle Moore and Police Chief Rob Copley tying a red ribbon to their cars.

The ribbons raise awareness to not drink and drive, especially during the holiday season.

Project Red Ribbon is sponsored by Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and in the 26 years of doing it here locally, DUI arrests have gone down.

However, nationally, it's still a pretty big problem.

"We spend a lot of money trying to cure terrible diseases which kill people. This is a very simple cure. It doesn't cost anything. All you have to do is choose not to drink and drive," J.T. Dozier with the local MADD chapter said.

You can get a ribbon for yourself at Quincy City Hall, the police station and many area banks.

On December 7th, Quincy Notre Dame students will hand them out in the drive thru line at Hardees at 30th and Broadway.
