As December’s National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month wraps up, I would like to share some great information from the Farmington Hills Police Chief Charles Nebus, on what the city is doing this holiday to crack down on drunk driving.
Q. What types of initiatives does the city have planned for the holiday season this year to address Drunk Driving Prevention?
A. The Farmington Hills Police Department is participating in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s impaired driving initiative, “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.” Officers are scheduled throughout the holiday season to specifically target drunk drivers.
It’s important to remind ourselves during this holiday season of the slogan from National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month, that you must drive sober… or you will get pulled over.
This is not to be a holiday killjoy. Rather, it is because nearly 11,000 people die on the road every year due to drunk driving. In order to hopefully save lives, law enforcement in Michigan will be cracking down on drunk driving over the holidays.
