FSU Holds 24-Hour 'Stop DUI' Bike Ride

By  | 


Students and members of law enforcement at Florida State University will spend the next few hours circling campus while encouraging others not to drink and drive.

Monday morning the FSU police department kicked off the first 24-hour campus bike ride to stop DUI.

Riders started Monday morning at 8 a.m. and will ride until 8 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Throughout the night riders will stop at various dorms to educate students on the dangers of drinking and driving.

"The fact is, in Florida every 24 hours more than three people die in impaired driving crashes, so this is 24 hours we are going to take back and have something positive happen," explained FSU Police Major James Russell, who says so far for 2006 close to 130 DUI arrests have been made on campus.
