Drive sober or get pulled over: Valley police, state troopers are part of holiday DUI sweep
November 26, 2012 · 10:23 AM
The Washington Traffic Safety Commission is planning a “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” holiday campaign, and commission director Darrin Grondel urges drivers to plan ahead.
As part of the campaign, extra officers will be canvassing roadways between Thanksgiving and January 1, 2013, throughout King County searching for alcohol-impaired drivers.
Sheriff's deputies and police in North Bend, Snoqualmie, Duvall/Carnation and the Washington State Patrol will participate in Washington State’s first-ever Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.
The King County Target Zero Task Force organizes and supports this enforcement effort.
“Don’t let a DUI ruin your holidays. Before you leave home for a holiday party, think about how everyone can get home safely. Designate a sober driver, take a taxi, stay the night,” Grondel says.
