If you got stopped by a R.I.D.E. Program on Ouellette Avenue, Thursday afternoon, you’ll know it was for an extra special cause.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving launched their 2016 Project Red Ribbon campaign with the help of five emergency agencies and a Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere program just out in front of Anderson Funeral Home on Ouellette.
Police officers stopped traffic in both directions, asked drivers if they had been drinking, and handed out free ice scrapers and red MADD ribbons.
Windsor-Essex MADD community leader Chaouki Hamka put together the event and said the 29-year-old Red Ribbon campaign is still going strong with its message that drunk driving kills.
