County in ‘Drive Sober’ campaign

To combat drunken driving, local law enforcement agencies (Sheboygan County Sheriff, Sheboygan Police, Sheboygan Falls Police, Plymouth Police and Elkhart Lake Police) will join other law enforcement agencies throughout Wisconsin participating in the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” national campaign from Dec. 18 through Jan. 3, 2016.

“Although drunken driving is 100 percent preventable, on average someone is killed or injured in an alcohol-related crash in Wisconsin every three hours,” said Plymouth Police Chief Jeff Tauscheck. “And while celebrating the holidays, people may be tempted to drive when they are impaired. During the ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ campaign, our officers will be out in force to arrest drunken drivers before they kill or injure themselves or an innocent victim.”

Rather than risk a drunken driving arrest or crash, the law enforcement agencies urge you to follow these common sense 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.
