[ARCHIVED] Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over: Holiday Crackdown December 20 – January 1

From Friday, Dec. 20 – Wednesday, Jan. 1, Lombard Police Officers will be out in full force, seeking out alcohol and drug-impaired drivers. Law enforcement will show zero tolerance for drunk or drugged driving. Efforts to reduce impaired driving on our roads include an increased number of state and national messages about the dangers of impaired driving, combined with more officers enforcing live-saving seat belt, speeding and distracted driving laws.

Sadly, statistics show much work must still be done to end impaired driving. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that from 2013 – 2017, there were 4,110 drunk-driving related deaths in the month of December.

Alcohol-impaired driving isn’t the only risk on the road. Drug-impaired driving is also on the rise. If drivers are impaired by any substance — whether alcohol or drugs — they should not get behind the wheel. Driving while impaired is illegal, period. If you feel different, you drive different. Drive high, get a DUI
