BTPD participates in Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.

Summertime and the Labor Day holiday is when most of us gather to enjoy free time with friends and family. They are also some of the most deadly times on American roads due to impaired driving. That's why during this period a nationwide campaign comprised of thousands of traffic safety partners join together to protect citizens from this deadly crime.

Here in New Jersey, the Division of Highway Traffic Safety utilizes the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign to achieve its goal: prevention.

The BTPD is a proud participant in this campaign which begins August 16 and concludes on September 2. During the campaign, we will be conducting roving patrols targeting motorists who may be driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs.

During the past five years, New Jersey’s roadways experienced 36,778 crashes and 679 fatalities involving impaired drivers.

The BTPD offers the following tips so that you can avoid driving while impaired:

• If you plan to drink, designate a driver, someone who will not drink alcohol, before going out.
• Take mass transit, ride sharing, a taxi or ask a sober friend to drive you home.
• Spend the night where the activity is held.
• Always buckle up, every ride, regardless of your seating position in the vehicle. It’s your best defense against an impaired driver.
• If you’re intoxicated and traveling on foot, the safest way to get home is to take a cab or have a sober friend or family member drive you to your doorstep.
