Nationwide Campaign to Reduce Drunk Driving
The holidays are often filled with celebrations and parties. A common feature at these celebrations is alcohol. Because alcohol is a common feature of holiday celebrations, law enforcement agencies across the nation are teaming up on the annual “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.” Law enforcement officials hope that their efforts and the nationwide campaign will help to reduce the number of people driving while under the influence.
The campaign began on Friday, December 14th and will continue through New Years Day. During the campaign, there will be an increased law enforcement presence on the roadways to try to find those driving under the influence. The officers will be looking for things such as drivers not using headlights and people swerving to identify possible drunk drivers.
The purpose of the campaign is to help keep everyone on the roadways safe. Law enforcement officials hopes that the campaign will encourage drivers to make smart choices and not get behind the wheel after they have been drinking. By driving sober, you can help make the roadways safer for everyone.
If you are planning to drink, you should also be planning to have a means of transportation to get home that does not involve getting behind the wheel. Some ways to get home safely include designated drivers, using services such as Uber or Lyft or public transportation. By taking advantage of these things, the roads will be safer for everyone.
