Each year at the fair, the Lima-Allen County Safe Community Coalition takes time to encourage people not to drink and drive.

Law enforcement, first responders, and family members of individuals who have been victims of impaired driving gathering to be part of the nationwide, "Drive Sober or get Pulled Over" campaign. Now through Labor Day, police will be out in full force with a zero tolerance for impaired driving. Their biggest message, "If you choose to drink, choose not to drive" as the consequences can be deadly.

The Erhnsberger family shared how they have been coping since losing their loved one.

"For me if I talk about it and get it out in the open, it helps me to heal that much more, and that way hopefully I can help somebody else and save one other person and if my son died to save one person on this Earth, it's worth it. It's worth it that I can help save that one person because that one person can save the next person," commented Candace Erhnsberger.
