DRIVE SOBER OR GET PULLED OVER

The City of Lake Geneva Police Department, Walworth Police Department,

and other WI law enforcement agencies to crack down on drunken motorists during

the ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ campaign

 

The City of Lake Geneva Police Department will be out in force along with hundreds of other law enforcement agencies throughout Wisconsin for the annual “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown on drunken drivers from Aug. 15 to Sept. 1.

 

Drunken driving is one of the most prevalent and deadly crimes in Wisconsin, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. Last year, 223 people were killed and nearly 3,000 injured in alcohol-related traffic crashes in Wisconsin.  There were nearly 27,000 convictions for drunken driving in the state last year.

 

“Drunken driving is entirely preventable. You can designate a sober driver or find an alternative way home. But if you make the irresponsible choice to drive while impaired, our officers will be on the lookout, and we will arrest you,” says Sgt. B. Way. “The devastating consequences of a drunken driving arrest include major embarrassment, expensive penalties, mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device, and possibly jail time. Driving drunk will be a decision you’ll regret the rest of your life, if you are lucky enough to live.”

 

To help prevent drunken driving, the Zero In Wisconsin traffic safety initiative has a free “Drive Sober” mobile app, which includes features like “Find a Ride,” blood alcohol estimator and designated driver selector to help you get home safely and achieve zero preventable deaths on Wisconsin roadways. The Drive Sober app can be downloaded by visiting zeroinwisconsin.gov.

 

The Lake Geneva Hope Walk is a non-competitive walk that raises

funds to fight breast cancer.

This year proceeds go to the Aurora Health Care Breast Treatment Assistance Program.

This program helps educate women and defrays medical expenses

for uninsured and underinsured women for mammograms.

The walk takes place from Lake Geneva to Williams Bay

along the shore path and is scheduled for Saturday, September 27, 2014.

Motor vehicle crashes are the No. 1 killer of kids.


Why? In many cases, children are either not properly buckled into their safety seats or parents don’t realize that a booster seat

is vital to ensuring children fit

safely in their vehicle’s seat belt.

Don’t take a chance.

Have your child’s safety seat inspected!
