Maryland Remembers is an annual memorial that honors the lives of hundreds of Maryland citizens killed at the hands of impaired drivers. It was founded on the realization that each year an average of 160 Maryland citizens die in alcohol-related crashes. Drunk driving is a crime and these crashes are preventable. This memorial and press opportunity reminds all Marylanders that our mission Toward Zero Deaths and the elimination of drunk driving is a priority.
All victim families and friends who have lost a loved one to a drunk driving related crashes, as well as Impaired Driving Coalition members, partner agencies, advocates are invited to attend the 9th Annual Maryland Remembers Memorial service. Family members and friends are encouraged to bring framed pictures of loved ones to the memorial for a procession to honor their lives.
The accomplishments of the Checkpoint Strikeforce enforcement and public information campaign and the continued commitment from law enforcement throughout the holiday season will be presented with the intent to create awareness for safe holiday travel on Maryland roadways.
