Holiday party-goers, beware! To help save lives this holiday season, The Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Office is launching a special “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown to stop impaired drivers and to save lives on our roadways.
The Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Office said its deputies will be aggressively looking for impaired drivers and will arrest anyone caught driving impaired. Enforcement efforts will include saturation patrols. The special enforcement crackdown will run from December 12, 2012, through January 1, 2013.
“Lots of folks will be out during this busy holiday season, enjoying themselves and the holiday festivities, and we want everyone to be safe on our roadways.” said Sheriff Rich Anderson. “That’s why we will be stepping up enforcement to catch and arrest impaired drivers. Please be forewarned. If you are caught drinking and driving impaired, you will be arrested. No warnings. No excuses.”
During 2010, more than 10,000 people were killed nationwide in motor vehicle traffic crashes involving an impaired driver.
So remember, ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.’ “We will be watching.”
