Recipes for the Road is part of our Celebrate Safely, Designate a Driver program with local restaurants and bars.

Be Responsible – 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-alcoholic drink recipes. Please feel free to share and enjoy all these mocktails, food recipes, safety activity games and traffic safety tips.

Summer Celebrate Safely

The Florida Department of Transportation’s District Two Community Traffic Safety Program created a new summer edition of “Recipes for the Road.” This double-sided card has simple safety messages along with delicious, non-alcoholic “mocktail” drink recipes, heart-healthy recipes, and an appetizer recipe. Our goal is to promote positive driving behaviors all year long and reduce the number of impaired driving crashes, injuries, and fatalities on our roadways.
