Don't think the media has to print, publish or use the material you provide or send to them.  Also, do not have an attitude with the media, as if you are doing them a favor.  Chances are the media gets hundreds, if not thousands if press releases a day.  If they sense an attitude from your press release, chances are it will get dropped.

LATCH Cross Country

With the holiday season moving into full swing, families across the country are in the car and on the go.  Whether you?re driving across the country to visit family or across town to holiday shop, it is important that your child passengers are riding safely and that child safety seats are used correctly.

AAA estimated that 30 million people travelled this Thanksgiving holiday alone (AAA Chicago Newsroom), and for many this is just the beginning of the holiday hustle and bustle.  Now is the time to utilize the Child Car Safety tools (Child Passenger Safety) provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation?s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Ad Council to learn more about proper car seat use and installation.  You will find informative resources that include instructional videos.

Have child passenger safety questions that you need answered before you travel over the river and through the woods to Grandma?s?  NHTSA is always available to answer your questions online through Facebook and Twitter.

Don't Be Buzzed While You Are Driving

It's holiday party season - time to celebrate all of the exciting winter holidays with our friends and loved ones.  Our mailboxes are  flooded with invitations to parties and dinners and other holiday
get-togethers.  With these parties come food, fellowship, gifts, and
in many cases, festive alcoholic drinks.

In 2008, nearly 12,000 people in the U.S. were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes - and during the periods around Christmas and New Year's, this number was particularly high, with 316
people killed in alchol-impaired driving crashes.
  In 2007, 162,493 women were arrested for a DUI, an increase of almost 29% since 1998.  You can't help but wonder if lives could have been saved if people
thought twice before getting behind the wheel.  With the holidays approaching, it's important that drivers be reminded about the dangers of buzzed driving.  Who could save a life.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) and the Ad Council are asking everyone to drive smart this holiday season and to pledge not to drive buzzed.  Help spread this message during the
holiday season by posting about the dangers of buzzed driving, sharing a story or experience you might have had with buzzed driving and encouraging readers to follow Buzzed Driving on Twitter
(@buzzeddriving) and Facebook ( to get the
latest updates and news.  You can also visit the Buzzed Driving website ( where readers can sign a pledge to not drive buzzed, play an interactive game which demonstrates the difference between buzzed and drunk, and hear personal stories from people who have driven buzzed.

While at holiday events, it's easy to lose track of a drink here or there - but this can be fatal.  This holiday season, keep you and your family safe by spreading this message.

Have a safe and happy holiday and remember that buzzed driving IS
drunk driving.
