The Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Office is joining with law enforcement throughout the nation for the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign August 17-September 3.
The strong nationwide impaired driving crackdown will include high-visibility enforcement, high-profile events, and will be supported by national paid advertising, creating a comprehensive campaign to curb alcohol impaired driving in August through the Labor Day holiday weekend.
The Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Office will be aggressively looking for impaired drivers during the crackdown and will arrest anyone caught driving impaired.
It is illegal in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, to drive with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 grams per deciliter. Despite these laws, in 2010 more than 10,000 people died in crashes in which a driver or motorcycle rider was impaired.
