On Thursday, December 11, 2014, members of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office attended the 11th Annual Maryland Remembers event. This event memorializes those people who lost their lives to impaired drivers in the state of Maryland throughout the years. An average of 175 people are killed annually in Maryland by impaired drivers. Many names were read at the start of the event, including a 2 year old child who was killed by an impaired driver. There were several guest speakers, including former Calvert County Commissioner and current Deputy Secretary of the Maryland Department of Transportation, Wilson H. Parran.
This event is a reminder why law enforcement agencies are aggressively enforcing traffic laws and taking impaired drivers off of the road. The Maryland MVA has created and launched an app called ENDUI. The ENDUI app is an educational tool kit created to give impaired driving safety information, so you can make good choices when out drinking. The ENDUI app is available on iTunes and Google Play.
Please remember this holiday season and every day of the year - #DriveSober or get pulled over.
