Sun Prairie Police Department - Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign

Sun Prairie Police Dept. to crack down on drunken motorists during the ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ campaign

To combat drunken driving, the Sun Prairie Police Department will join hundreds of other law enforcement agencies throughout Wisconsin participating in the annual “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” national campaign from Aug. 21 to Sept. 7.

Although drunken driving is 100 percent preventable, on average someone is killed or injured in an alcohol-related crash in Wisconsin every three hours. During the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign, our officers will be out in force to help change this behavior.

Rather than risk a drunken driving arrest or crash, we urge you to follow these suggestions:

Choose a sober designated driver before you start drinking.

If you’re feeling buzzed, you likely are over the 0.08 BAC limit and should not drive.

Take mass transit, a taxicab or ask a sober friend to drive you home.

The Zero In Wisconsin traffic safety program has a free “Drive Sober” mobile app that can be downloaded by visiting

Some taverns and restaurants have programs to provide patrons with a safe ride home. Visit and click on Safe Ride.

Report impaired drivers to law enforcement by calling 911.
