Utah Highway Patrol trooper Andrew Pollard receives a bagged lunch from R & R BBQ’s Chad Branagan in South Jordan on Tuesday during the kickoff to Mothers Against Drunk Driving’s campaign to eliminate drunken driving. Every holiday season from Nov. 1 through Dec. 31 MADD asks people to to display a MADD red ribbon in a visible location to remind others to always designate a nondrinking driver as part of the Tie One on for Safety campaign. In Utah, this year’s campaign is sponsored by 103.5 The Arrow and runs through Jan. 3, 2021. According to MADD, 1,068 people were killed in drunken driving accidents, which was 29% of total traffic fatalities in 2019.
