(PIKESVILLE, MD) – In the spirit of the holidays and as part of our ongoing efforts to remind motorists of driving dangers, especially during this time of year, the Maryland State Police music department has prepared this public safety message with the deepest respect for and apologies to the popular song of the season, “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” Motorists having trouble keeping the need for traffic safety on their mind at this time of the year are urged to use this handy musical reminder.

And, in an effort to save cyberspace and increase the chance of you reading to the end, only the first and last verses of the song are included…..

On the first day of Christmas
The trooper said to me
Make traffic safety your priority

On the twelfth day of Christmas
The trooper said to me
Don’t drive drowsy
Don’t follow cars too closely
Don’t change lanes unsafely
Don’t drive drugged
Drive the speed limit
Don’t drive aggressively
Yield the right of way
Don’t drink and drive
No handheld cell calls
Don’t text and drive
Always buckle up
And make traffic safety your priority

While many activities are prohibited when driving, singing is not one of them……

Have a happy and safe holiday season.
