The New York State Thruway Authority, in collaboration with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and New York State Police kicked off its 29th Annual Red Ribbon Campaign yesterday. To mark the annual campaign, Thruway Authority toll collectors are handing out red ribbons at select toll facilities along the Thruway to promote awareness about the dangers of driving while intoxicated. The ribbons will be distributed to motorists upon entry at numerous Thruway locations including exit 24 (Albany).
