“Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” starts Dec. 18

“Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” high-visibility crackdown begins on Friday, Dec. 18th, and runs through New Year’s Day. Prince William County Police, as well as law enforcement agencies throughout Virginia and the region, are targeting this time period because the holidays bring a surge in drunk-driving.

Drunk driving is both reckless and preventable. The “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign aims to get that point across. Drivers continue to break the law by driving impaired, putting thousands of travelers at risk every day.

Prince William County Police Department wants drivers to know that it doesn’t tolerate drunk driving. No excuses, no warnings. If drivers are caught driving impaired, they will be arrested. 

Once impaired, use mass transit, call a cab or ask a sober friend to get you home. SoberRide began offering free taxi rides to impaired persons (up to a $30 fare) on Dec. 11 and will continue to do so through Jan. 1. The service is available from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly. Call 1-800-200-TAXI to arrange for a ride.
