Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over runs through January 2
Nearly 10,000 people are killed annually on our nation's roadways due to drunk driving. In an effort to reduce these numbers, law enforcement agencies across the country are participating in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign. Police will begin cracking down on drunk driving as part of the campaign on December 1, 2014. Enforcement continues through January 2, 2015. The goal of the campaign is prevention, according to the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety.
"The key to deterring impaired driving is highly visible enforcement. The research is clear on the affect highly visible enforcement has on deterring impaired driving. Prevention and not arrest is the goal of the campaign."
