Tulsa County leaders are encouraging drivers not to drink and drive this holiday season.

They held a lighting ceremony for the Tree of Life at Woodland Hills Mall on Thursday.

There are 88 presents under the tree, which represent the number of lives lost since 2015 - due to an impaired driver over the Christmas holiday.

"We've gone down one since last year, but that 88 proves we still have a long way to go," said Mark Madeja, AAA.

"We want people to make the right decision before they even go out to the party. Let's not drive impaired this Christmas; let's save lives."
