Police Officers from the Delaware River Port Authority will be cracking down on drunk drivers as part of the annual holiday season “Drive Sober or get Pulled Over” 2011 Statewide Crackdown. Beginning December 5 and running through January 2, 2012, local and state police will conduct saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints, looking for drivers who may be driving while intoxicated.

A concentrated national effort, the campaign helps to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving through high visibility enforcement and public education tools, including posters, banners and mobile video display signs. Special variable message signs will be located at all four DRPA bridges. Launched nationally in 1999, the program works to combat drunk driving during some of the busiest travel times of the year.

DRPA CEO, John J. Matheussen, says “We consider it a top priority to participate in this ongoing critical  law enforcement effort that is designed to save lives and keep our bridges safe for our customers.”

Traffic safety experts recommend if someone plans to drink alcoholic beverages they should designate a driver who will not drink alcohol before going out, take mass transit or a taxi home, or, spend the night where the activity is held.

Giving Thanks! Each year, at this time, the Board of EPX through the generosity of our membership and area businesses, works to complete our annual charitable giving campaign!  Donations are tax deductable as EPX is a 501(c)(3) exempt charitable organization! Donations may also be made at the November and December General Membership meetings or through the Paypal link on this website.EPX donations start, each year, with a gift to a local area food bank. The Philadelphia Access Center (PAC) at 11th & Mifflin Streets supplies turkeys to over a dozen neighbors in our area and EPX provides the rest of their Thanksgiving dinner.  Everything from salad to cranberry sauce, stuffing to green beans, mashed potatoes to gravy…and more.  The hard work of gathering donations, shopping and delivering these items falls to our Treasurer Millie Ruffino, our Recording Secretary Jo Cardillo and Marketing/Events Chair Pat Pitt.  Let’s give these ladies a great big round of applause!!!
