The end of August is fast approaching. It is a time to celebrate the last days of good weather with friends and family. Unfortunately, police say, it is also a time when too many people make the decision to get behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or a combination of both.
The Vermont State Highway Safety Office is partnering with NHTSA, State, County, and Local Police to participate in the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over High Visibility Enforcement Campaign. The campaign will run from Friday, Aug. 16 through Monday, Sept. 2. Law Enforcement Agencies will be out on the Interstates, secondary roads, and back roads, aggressively enforcing Vermont’s impaired driving, speeding, seat belt, and distracted driving laws.
