Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Holiday Campaign starts tomorrow in Cl Twp


Beginning December 9, 2016 and continuing through January 1, 2017, local and state law enforcement officials will conduct saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints looking for motorists who may be driving while intoxicated as part of the annual year-end “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” statewide campaign. The national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” effort endeavors to raise awareness about the dangers of impaired driving through a combination of high-visibility enforcement and public education.


The Clinton Township Police Department offers the following advice for travel during the holiday season: -Ask a sober friend to drive you home. -Spend the night where the activity or party is held. -If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact law enforcement. Your actions may save someone’s life. -Always buckle-up, every ride. It is your best defense against an impaired driver. -If you are intoxicated and traveling on foot, the safest way to get home is to take a cab or have a sober friend or family member drive or escort you to your doorstep. -Be responsible. If someone you know is drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel of an automobile.
