TEAM Georgia's annual Safe Holiday Campaign has strengthened its line-up for 2012, to encourage sober driving and safe holiday gatherings during the coming weeks. Officials from TEAM Georgia and the Governor's Office of Highway Safety will be joined by metro Atlanta leaders for the launch of the 2012 TEAM Georgia Safe Holiday Campaign on Thursday, Dec. 6 at the Smyrna Community Center. The event will include a model safe holiday celebration.
Now in its second decade, the TEAM Georgia Safe Holiday Campaign urges businesses, private hosts and members of the hospitality industry to put the safety of employees, guests and patrons first during the holiday season.
The Safe Holiday Campaign involves area bars and restaurants to display Safe Holiday information, offer a free non-alcoholic drink to designated drivers, and inform patrons about the free ride home available from Checker Cab. The campaign's 2012 Safe Holiday Guide will reach thousands of Georgia businesses and private hosts with safe celebration suggestions, plus safety and legal reminders for party goers.
