Dear Community Members,
Thank you for your recent purchase. Whether you realize it or not, driving to work or to and from work or school can be the most dangerous time of your day. Recent accidents and tragedies have made us want to do more. That’s why we formed a coalition to launch a new campaign, Back to Basics—Arrive Alive. As automakers continue to add technology and features to their vehicles, some of which enhance safety, many drivers want to multitask while behind the wheel. I think this campaign will help us refocus on driving responsibly and be better role models for each other and young people.
Many of us believe that driver training taught us all the basics and that years of experience have made us safer drivers. However, care must be taken to reinforce the basic skills necessary to become a safe driver. “Back to Basics—Arrive Alive” is a way to share safe driving information with everyone, whether at work, school, or commuting.
We would like to remind everyone of the importance of wearing seat belts on every trip. Also, drive slowly, do not use alcohol or drugs, and avoid distractions. Getting back to basics will make Barron County’s roads safer and help our loved ones get home safely.
Together, we want everyone to be able to get home safely to work, school or travel. The choices you make today affect what happens to you and the people around you tomorrow. So let’s go back to basics and start Arrive Alive.
Safe travels from all of us,
- Barron County Sheriff’s Office
