‘Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over’ Campaign Now Underway

(Fall River) The state Department of Transportation’s annual “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” holiday campaign begins Friday and runs through January 1st. Motorists will see an increase in officers on the road during the stepped-up enforcement efforts – 6,000 will be out across the state, and in addition to 300 drug recognition experts. Sheriff’s offices in Fond du Lac and Columbia counties are participating, along with agencies in Campbellsport, Brandon Fairwater, Fond du Lac, Oakfield, Rosendale, Waupun,  Fall River, Lodi, Portage and Wyocena. The consequences of impaired driving in Wisconsin are well documented – in 2018, 159 people died in alcohol-related crashes on Wisconsin roads and more than 3,000 people were injured.
