"DRIVE SOBER OR GET PULLED OVER" CAMPAIGN UNDERWAY

 

     The Baxter County Sheriff’s Office is participating in the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” nationwide initiative designed to crackdown on drunk driving. This campaign will continue through the Labor Day holiday period.

  

     Drivers should expect to see increased activity with respect to enforcement of Arkansas’ driving while intoxicated law. This may include extra patrols and saturation patrols during specific periods of time.

 

     Statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicate more than 10,000 people across the United States died as the result of highway crashes involving drivers or motorcycle operators who were legally impaired by alcohol, including 123 people in Arkansas. Driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or higher is unlawful in every state. Drivers should be aware that the consequences of driving while impaired can have a huge negative impact on their lives. Impaired drivers run the risk of jail time, loss of driver license, increased insurance rates, and hefty fines and fees.

 

     “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” is a law enforcement initiative led by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and combines high-visibility enforcement with heightened public awareness through advertising and publicity. Please don’t endanger yourselves and others by drinking and driving. Play it safe!

 

/s/ John F. Montgomery,
Baxter County Sheriff
