‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ Campaign Underway
The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles, the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee, and state, county, and local law enforcement announced the start of a two-week long, statewide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” enforcement and education campaign. Beginning today through September 4th, state, county and local law enforcement officers will target drunken and drug-impaired driving offenses to encourage motorists to act responsibly
Officials urged New Yorkers to download the free “Have a Plan” app that allows people to locate and call a taxi or newly-available ride share service, program a designated-driver list, and educate themselves on Blood Alcohol Content levels. The app is free and available for Apple, Android, and Windows smart phones.
