DRIVE SOBER OR GET PULLED OVER CAMPAIGN:
RAYTOWN POLICE JOIN NATIONAL CRACKDOWN
TO REDUCE DRUNK DRIVING FATALITIES

Raytown, MO – DRIVE SOBER OR GET PULLED OVER TO TARGET IMPAIRED DRIVERS

From mid-August through Labor Day weekend the police will be out in force as part of the annual nationwide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown on impaired driving. The crackdown, which will include high visibility enforcement throughout the State, will run from August 15th through September 1st, 2014.

Those choosing to drive impaired will be arrested in this aggressive campaign to combat impaired driving. Every year about one-third of all motor vehicle traffic deaths involve one or more impaired drivers or motorcycle operators. In 2013 there were 223 people who died in Missouri crashes involving impaired drivers. That works out to approximately one impaired driving fatality every 1.5 days. Holidays are particularly dangerous for these types of crashes.
