Advisory

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over 2018

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. 17 to Sept. 3.

Although drunken driving is 100 percent preventable, 161 people were killed and over 3,000 were injured in alcohol-related crashes in Wisconsin last year. During the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign, our officers will be out in force to help change this behavior.

And while alcohol-impaired drivers remain a significant problem, a growing concern is drugged driving - people whose ability to safely operate a motor vehicle is compromised by legal or illegal drugs including prescription and over-the-counter medications. To combat this we have officers have been trained in Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) to help detect and remove impaired drivers from the roadways.

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


-If you plan to celebrate, identify a sober designated driver. Never allow someone else to get behind the wheel impaired.

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

-Download the free “Drive Sober” mobile app from the WisDOT website. The app includes a “find a ride” feature to help locate mass transit and taxi services.

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

-Report impaired drivers to law enforcement by calling 911. Provide as much detail as possible on the driver, vehicle, and location.
