Chapters around the nation, primarily in the East Texas Region, have made Brothers Against Drunk Driving a tradition and this year was no different. In an effort to raise awareness about the dangers of drunk driving and risky practices during the Spring Break season, the brothers at Delta Chapter at Texas A&M University, Pi Chapter at the University of Houston, Beta Eta Chapter at the University of Central Oklahoma and at Xi Chapter at the University of Oklahoma encouraged their respective campus communities to engage in safe spring break practices.
At Delta Chapter, the chapter set up tabling efforts throughout the week prior to Spring Break and invited Aggies to come learn facts about the dangers of drunk driving as well as the costs associated with infractions related to alcohol such as Driving While Intoxicated, Public Intoxication, and Minor in Possession. The University Police Department of Texas A&M was on hand to answer questions and share their knowledge with the student body.
The Delta Knights have hosted Brothers Against Drunk Driving for years now and it is one of the chapter’s spring signature events. During their tabling efforts, the Delta Knights have in the past handed out virgin margaritas, invited their fellow students to walk the line with drunk goggles on, handed out citations with the costs and consequences of DWIs, MIP’s, and PI’s. The chapter has also worked to raise awareness about the dangers of excessive drinking and engaging in risky behaviors during Spring Break celebrations.
