Safe & Sober Holiday Kickoff
For 31 years now, the Council has been inviting the community to celebrate the start of the holiday season with a free luncheon to remind everyone to be safe, be sober, and be merry. The Texas Department of Transportation reports that in 2020, there were 2,370 DUI-alcohol related crashes in Texas during the holiday season. Those crashes killed 75 people and seriously injured another 199. The Safe + Sober Holiday Kickoff highlights the importance of preventing drinking and driving every day and especially during the Holiday Season, when there is an increase in accidents related to alcohol.
