New State Police Video for the Holiday Season

During the final month of 2010, Virginia State Police are urging drivers to make sure they hear the ringing of holiday bells instead of the jingling of handcuffs.

To remind motorists once again about making responsible choices while driving, the Virginia State Police have a new video. The public safety message reminds drivers to avoid drunk driving, wear seatbelts and "move over" for emergency workers on the side of the road.

The holidays are particularly deadly due to the high number of drunk drivers on the roads. Impaired driving leads to too many tragic consequences. In 2009, 316 people were killed and another 6,256 persons were injured in alcohol-related traffic crashes across Virginia.
