Members of the Florida State Police Department go above and beyond the call of duty by educating youth on the dangers of driving drunk.

Tuesday, department officials began the planning phase of "Safe Ride For Survival." The campaign will pull together teams of cyclists to travel statewide, stopping at each university to teach students of the dangers of DUI and improper seat belt usage.

James Russell, an FSU Police Department spokesperson, says, "People really need to know how deadly DUI and failure to wear a seat belt really is. This event is going to bring information about that state wide in the forefront of people's minds."

If all goes well, the bike tour should kick off in the spring of 2006.
