Noah On Patrol

2747. That was the badge number of Officer Noah Leotta, who was killed in the line of duty by a drunk driver while on DUI patrol in December 2015.

The following year, his parents — Rich Leotta and Marcia Goldman — spearheaded passage of a long-sought law in Maryland that now requires ignition interlock devices for all convicted drunk drivers.

When Noah’s Law was approved, Officer Leotta’s father said: “From now on, every time an ignition interlock device is installed in Maryland, it will be like Noah is still on patrol.”

Noah paid with his life for someone else’s drunk driving. He was a son, a brother, a graduate of Montgomery County schools, and a dedicated police officer. Noah was passionate about public safety and committed to helping take drunk drivers off the road.

Noah On Patrol is advancing Montgomery County’s Vision Zero plan to achieve zero traffic deaths and injuries by 2030, and support the interim goal of a 35 percent reduction by the end of December 2019.

Noah had a promising life ahead of him before it was ended by a drunk driver. His loss was a tragedy for all of us in Montgomery County. You have an opportunity to help free your community from drunk driving. Start with yourself. Encourage your friends and family. Join with your neighbors.

Promise your friends and family.

Promise you’ll join with a million fellow residents to make Montgomery County the first major jurisdiction in the nation to eliminate drunk driving.
