Thanks to those who support safe driving | Letters

Editor,

The 100 Deadly Days of Summer that began Memorial Day Friday ended Labor Day.

It is one of the most dangerous and deadliest times of the year on our nation’s roads.

Sadly it seems Island County was not left unscathed.

We lost at least one person to a driver suspected of being under the influence during this time while others were injured in suspected DUI crashes.

Together we must do what we can to reduce the threat of DUI because it is a threat to each and every one of us.

I’d like to thank those businesses and organizations that supported our Keep It a Safe Summer campaign.

All funds raised are to be matched by long-time Partner in Prevention Island Thrift up to $5,000 for IDIPIC’s mission to deter driving under the influence and underage drinking in our communities through education and awareness.

We can all be Partners in Prevention when it comes to DUI to help keep us all safe from a 100 percent preventable scourge on our roads.

Mike Diamanti
IDIPIC
