New Glarus and Belleville Police Departments to Crack Down on Drunken Motorists During the 'Winter Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over' Traffic Campaign
December 12, 2019
The New Glarus and Belleville Police Departments will be out with other law enforcement agencies throughout Wisconsin and the rest of the nation for the “Winter Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown on drunken drivers from December 15 through New Year’s Day.
Drunken driving is entirely preventable. If we can deter people from getting behind the wheel when they’re not sober, we will make progress toward the goal of reaching zero preventable traffic deaths in Wisconsin. Last year, alcohol-related crashes resulted in 169 deaths and more than 3,300 injuries. While alcohol-impaired drivers remain a concern, a growing problem involves drugged driving - people whose ability to safely operate a motor vehicle is compromised by legal or illegal drugs including prescription and over-the-counter medications.
