HERO Campaign Unveils HERO Police Cruisers That Promote Designated Driving

The John R. Elliott HERO Campaign has partnered with seven southern New Jersey police departments to unveil cruisers wrapped with HERO logos and messages promoting the use of designated drivers.

Somers Point, United States - October 18, 2020 /PressCable/ —

Seven southern New Jersey police departments recently unveiled a fleet of HERO cruisers, dedicated to preventing drinking and driving, at a ceremony held at the Boardwalk Promenade and JFK Boulevard in Sea Isle City, NJ.

By deploying the vehicles wrapped with HERO Campaign logos and messages aimed at promoting designated drivers, police departments from Atlantic City, Linwood, Sea Isle City, Lower and Middle townships, Ocean City, and Evesham Township, have partnered with the John R. Elliott HERO Campaign for Designated Drivers and its “Summer of HEROES” initiative, to remind motorists to always have a safe ride home whenever they consumer alcoholic beverages.

Now in its 20th year, the HERO Campaign was established in memory of Navy Ensign John R. Elliott of Egg Harbor Township, NJ, who was killed in a collision with a drunken driver in July, 2000, two months after graduating from the United States Naval Academy, where he was named the Outstanding HERO of his graduating class.

The HERO cruisers display the eye-catching message, “Be a HERO. Be a Designated Driver,” and will serve as rolling billboards as they travel around their communities on traffic duty, at special events, and at area schools.

“We are grateful to our law enforcement partners for helping us save lives by encouraging safe and sober designated driving,” HERO Campaign Chairman and Co-Founder Bill Elliott said. “With these rolling billboards reminding South Jersey residents of the importance of designated driving, we will keep our roads safe from the dangers of drunk driving.”

At the ceremony, Sea Isle City’s Mayor Len Desiderio and Police Chief Tom McQuillen were joined by police officials from each town, along with HERO Campaign Chairman Bill Elliott and business sponsors of the HERO Car signage program, which include Kindle Auto Plaza, the Foster Karney Foundation, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, ANA Towing, Car Toyz, Ironworkers Local 399 and Jane French.

In addition to law enforcement, the HERO Campaign partners with bar and tavern owners, schools and colleges and professional sports teams to register thousands of designated drivers annually.

Solidarity march against anti-Semitism, acts of hate

Oct 27, 2020

NEW YORK — Throngs of demonstrators joined by elected officials walked solemnly across the Brooklyn Bridge in a solidarity march Sunday against anti-Semitism and all acts of hate. The “No Hate, No Fear" march was organized by New York's Jewish community in the wake of recent anti-Semitic attacks, including a knife attack at a Hanukkah celebration north of New York City that left five people wounded and a fatal shootout at a kosher grocery in Jersey City, New Jersey. The crowds of participants jammed the streets in lower Manhattan as they waited their turns to get across the bridge. “It...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Oct 27, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Oct 27, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Oct 27, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...
