Navajo kids develop anti-drinking slogans

Billboards aim to save livesThe children who live along Navajo Route 36 near Upper Fruitland are asking motorists to slow down and drive sober.

Pictures of students from Nenahnezad Community School are plastered on four billboards strategically placed along the 30-mile strip of highway that connects N.M. 371 and U.S. 491. Labeled as one of the most dangerous roads on the Nation, Navajo Route 36 is the scene of more than 30 vehicle accidents every year.

Next to the pictures are sayings like "If you drink and drive, you're going to make someone cry," and "Slow down because I love you"—slogans written by the fifth-grade class at Nenahnezad Community School.
