Driver Sober or Get Pulled Over Starts Today, Runs Through January 1st
12/13/2019- To discourage impaired driving and enhance public safety, law enforcement agencies across Wisconsin will patrol in greater numbers and for longer hours during the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign that begins today. The Wisconsin DOT uses federal funds to support these stepped-up law enforcement efforts along with public education and outreach to help deter impaired driving. In 2018, alcohol-related crashes in Wisconsin resulted in 160 deaths and more than 3,000 injuries. While alcohol-impaired driving remains a concern, Wisconsin is also seeing a growing challenge with drugged drivers. Residents are reminded to celebrate responsibly this holiday season, which includes designating a sober driver if you plan to drink or downloading the free “Drive Sober” mobile app from the WisDOT website and using its free “find a ride” features to locate transportation alternatives. The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign runs through New Year’s Day.
