The holidays are upon us and with them come a lot of reasons to celebrate.
But police everywhere are reminding motorists to "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over".
Among those are Cheboygan County Sheriff Dale Clarmont who stated his department will once again be part of the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning (OHSP) “Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over” campaign this holiday season.
He said, "We have been allocated overtime patrols to crack down on drunk and drugged drivers.”
The busiest traveling holiday is Thanksgiving and the Clarmont wants to make it a safe one for all travelers. Drinking and driving is dangerous and illegal as is drugged driving. If you are caught driving drunk, you will be arrested,” said Clarmont. “Designate a sober driver before you and your friends celebrate.”
Extra patrols will on the roads beginning Wednesday, and continuing through December 10th.
Statistics show about one fatality an hour in the United Stated and about one a day in Michigan due to drunk or drug involved driving.
