3-d month fights drunken and drugged driving

December 07, 1998

December is "3-D" month in Maryland but no one needs special glasses to join in the fight against Drunk and Drugged Driving, according to local police and officials.

The Washington County Comprehensive Traffic Safety Program Coalition is promoting all kinds of efforts to cut down on impaired driving during the holiday season - traditionally one of the deadliest of the year.

Andrea Harris, coordinator of the Substance Abuse Prevention Services at the Washington County Health Department, pointed out that Lights On For Life Day will be observed locally on Dec. 18.

Motorists are being asked to drive with their headlights on that day to remind others about the impaired driving problem and to remember those who have been killed.

Law enforcement will take that observance one step further in their National Holiday Lifesavers Weekend, Dec. 18-20, increasing patrols for drunken drivers, speeders and aggressive drivers.

Sobriety checkpoints are planned throughout the month of December, according to police in Washington County.
