Last Edited: May 23, 2018 10:07 AM

This summer the John R. Elliott HERO Campaign will combat drunk driving by asking folks to take the HERO Pledge to be designated drivers and sticking HERO decals on their cars.

Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, the Highway HEROES Challenge will give out free decals to more than 10,000 motorists throughout southern New Jersey.

Three-hundred random lucky drivers with HERO decals on their cars will have to chance to enter a grand prize drawing, win gift certificates to local businesses, and share their car decals on the campaign’s social media sites.


At the 100 Days of Summer celebration on Friday, May 25th, HERO decals will be distributed to businesses, restaurants, bars, and taverns throughout the Jersey shore.

The event will start at 10 a.m. at the Farley Service Area on the Atlantic City Expressway.

“Highway HEROES will give the public an easy but powerful way to join our campaign and promote our life-saving designated driver message,” said Bill Elliott, chairman of the HERO Campaign, which was created in memory of his son, Navy Ensign John Elliott, who was killed by a drunk driver on July 2000.
