Marietta Cop Cab Combats Drinking and Driving
- Marietta Patch

The Marietta Police Department has launched a new campaign called “Cop Cab” to curb drinking and driving. The Cop Cab campaign visually combines the efforts of DUI education and the inevitable end result of DUI enforcement.

"It’s an educational tool we are using to try to prevent drinking and driving," Marietta Police Officer David Baldwin said. "If we talk in a seminar, we reach a small group of people in the scheme of things, but with the Cop Cab, we can put it out in high profile areas like in the Square. And it's a very catchy paint job that draws people in." See the car and learn more at Marietta Patch.
