Bronx kids work to prevent drunk driving

Twenty-five Bronx children took part in an annual campaign to keep drunk drivers off the streets. The kids created unique posters to raise awareness throughout the community about the dangers of drinking and driving.

On Saturday, all the kids put their artwork on display. The posters have also been displayed at community businesses. The event was sponsored by the Archdiocese of New York Drug Abuse Prevention Program and the Throgs Neck Community Action Partnership.

The former commanding officer of the 45th precinct, Deputy Inspector James Capaldo, received a Partnership Leadership award at the event.
