Make this a happy holiday season – don’t drink and drive

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office will be out in force watching out for drunk and unsafe drivers this Thanksgiving weekend and during the month of December with the goal of making sure holiday travel is as safe as possible here in the Florida Keys.

Deputies will be concentrating their efforts on drunk drivers, improper passing and other unsafe driving practices throughout the upcoming season in an effort to save lives and make this holiday season a safe and enjoyable one for everyone.

So, as you attend special holiday events, designate a sober driver or take a cab home if you decide to drink alcoholic beverages. Whatever you choose to do, don’t drink and drive. Remember: if you drink and drive and get caught, you will be spending the night in jail.

Our deputies spend their holidays working in order to keep our community safe. Have a safe and happy holiday season, from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.

Audio Public Service Announcements attached:

With the Thanksgiving weekend coming up, many people will be beginning to shop for the holidays, and many people will be on the road traveling to visit with family and friends.

For those of you who can use them, I have attached three holiday audio public service announcements from Sheriff Rick Ramsay. Each are just under 30 seconds.

  • Holiday shopping safety
  • Holiday driving safety
  • Don’t drink and drive over the holidays
