DRIVE SOBER OR GET PULLED OVER
The LaGrange Police Department is participating in a nationwide crackdown on impaired driving through the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign.
Drunk driving is something we take very seriously year-round; however, during this intensive crackdown, we aggressively target drunk drivers, who cause thousands of deaths each year that might have otherwise been prevented.
There were more than 4,200 collisions involving alcohol in Kentucky last year, resulting in more than 1,900 injuries and 119 fatalities. During the Labor Day holiday weekend, there were more than 60 collisions involving alcohol, resulting in 30 injuries and two fatalities.
The LaGrange Police Department is joining forces with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety, and nearly 10,000 law enforcement agencies across the country in the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign, which is a nationwide effort to get impaired drivers off America’s roadways.
