Dodge County Sheriff Among Those On New Year’s Eve Patrol

(Juneau) Dodge County Sheriff Dale Schmidt will be on the roadways tonight. He says once he gives his wife a kiss at midnight he will be out hunting for drunk drivers. Schmidt says an unspecified number of deputy’s will be joining him. The sheriff’s office is participating in the Driver Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign. Among the tips offered for a safe holiday include identifying a designated driver at parties and downloading the free “Driver Sober” app from the WisDOT website. The app has a ‘find a ride’ feature to help locate mass transit and taxi services. Schmidt says some taverns and restaurants also have programs to provide patrons a safe ride home.
