HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park is among seven national parks joining a campaign to prevent drunken driving.

The park service and Mothers Against Drunk Driving say C&O; Canal visitors can pick up red ribbons through the end of the year, marking the 30th anniversary of the group’s designated-driver campaign.

The slogan of the campaign is, “Tie one on for safety.”

The C&O; Canal parallels the Potomac River for nearly 185 miles between Cumberland and the District of Columbia. The canal towpath, once used by barge-pulling mules, is now a hiking and biking trail.
