Have a Safe Holiday Season – Be Responsible and Do Not Drink and Drive

Thanksgiving through the New Year is a fun and festive time of year. Throughout this fall and winter season there are many celebrations, family gatherings, festivals, football pre-game tailgating and holiday parties. They are all best enjoyed when we celebrate responsibly. Please always drive safe and sober.

Recipes for the Road was started to help reduce drinking and driving, offering a great collection of non-alchoholic drink recipes. Please feel free to share and enjoy all these mocktails, food recipes, safety activity games and traffic safety tips.

It’s a team effort to produce Recipes for the Road every year. We couldn’t do it without our wonderful sponsors, partners and volunteers! This year extra special thanks go out to AAA The Auto Club Group Jacksonville + PonteVedra, Landstar and Northeast Florida Safety Council. Your passion to keep our roads safe are truly appreciated.

FDOT District Two got into the spirit with a “Recipes for the Road” submission contest. Look for the favorite winning non-alcoholic drinks, desserts and hors d’ oeuvre recipes from our dedicated team.

Chef Tom consistently comes up with tasty, original recipes… look on page 12 for the “Easy-Peasy Pom-Lemon Squeeze” from Moxie Kitchen + Cocktails.

Drive to Save Lives

U R The Key: Drive to Save Lives tour at area high schools

Jacksonville and St Augustine – Cara Filler presented her Drive To Save Lives to many of our local high school students. Cara’s identical twin sister was killed in a crash while driving with her boyfriend, who was speeding and showboating. Cara uses her personal tragedy to educate teens in a positive and “doesn’t feel like learning” way on how to be a safe passenger, how to get out of driving with an impaired or dangerous driver, and how to take personal charge of your own safety.

“Your life. Your choice.”

Car crashes continue to be the number one cause of death for our teens. Having this amazing, national speaker available to our schools for free to discuss the importance of teen traffic safety was priceless. Special thanks go out to Florida SADD with grants from State Farm and the Florida Teen Safe Driving Coalition for making these life-saving presentations happen at eight of our schools.

Our Community Traffic Safety Team and other educational outreach of groups like SADD and the Teen Safe Driving Coalition continue to do all that we can to drive down teen deaths on our roadways. Our community leaders and partners help ensure teen drivers are provided with the information, motivation and tools that will keep them safe on the road.

Cara is a natural speaker, engaging and memorable. This powerful tour will not be forgotten by the students. The video, recorded and produced by Favorite Studios, is only a highlight of the full presentation which lasted about an hour. There was such an enthusiastic response from students and faculty, we can hope to see more of these teen safety events in the future.
