OPD Cracks Down on Impaired Driving

driver sober1 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (12/9/13) - As part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 2013 campaign, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, the Owensboro Police Department will be out in force between Dec. 13 and Jan. 1 to crack down on impaired driving. In addition to patrol units working to keep the roads safe, we will also employ traffic safety check points throughout the campaign period.

The holiday season is filled with family gatherings, company parties, and other social events that may include alcohol. We want to remind all drivers to be safe this year. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
  —Designate a sober driver
  — Use a taxi or public transportation  

—If you’re the host of the party and observe an impaired person, don’t let them get behind the wheel, help them make other arrangements so they arrive at their destination safely

—If you observe a drunk driver on the road, call law enforcement immediately

—If you’re the host of the party and observe an impaired person, don’t let them get behind the wheel, help them make other arrangements so they arrive at their destination safely

—If you observe a drunk driver on the road, call law enforcement immediately

Remember this simple message – Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over! Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over!
