Silhouettes to remind public of choices
Each of the 29 silhouettes represents a person in Lincoln Parish who has died due to alcohol in the last 10 years. Four silhouettes have been added this year since four lives were lost in 2006.
“This is an extension of an environmental strategy to change the culture of drinking within Lincoln Parish,” CHOICES director Clarence Thomas said. “We want to promote a clear public message supporting responsible decision making. Those 29 silhouettes represent deaths due to alcohol not just from vehicles, but anything where alcohol is a factor in the death.”
