To Our Delaware Drivers:Delaware is a beautiful state. From any point, you can enjoy the Atlantic coast
at our Seashore State Parks, nd bargains at outlet stores, attend the theatre inWilmington, or experience Delaware’s rich historic past in Dover or New Castle –
all within about 90 minutes.
As you drive on our roads, please be sure you and your fellow drivers arrive safelyat your destination. Obey the speed limit, wear your seatbelt, follow the rules ofthe roadway, and most importantly,
never drink and drive
. That is something we
will not tolerate in Delaware.
And while you are driving, consider the way your actions affect the environment.Share a ride, conserve your trips or perhaps try public transit. Each of thesemethods helps to ensure a “greener Delaware” for us all.Thank you and be safe,
Gov. Jack Markell
