VSP Looks to Cut Down On DUI
From now through the new year, the Vermont State Police and dozens of law enforcement agencies across the state will be working collaboratively in the national impaired driving campaign, “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”, to detect and remove alcohol and drug impaired drivers from our highways. This campaign is supported by the Vermont Governor’s Highway Safety Program and the National Highway Safety Administration.
Traffic enforcement is a critical mission to the Vermont State Police and remains their single most effective tool in saving lives and detecting and deterring criminal activity.
During this holiday season, many parties and gatherings occur with motorists potentially making poor decisions to drive after consuming alcohol and/or drugs, increasing their chances of being involved in a motor vehicle crash dramatically and putting others at risk on our roadways. Over 50% of all highway fatalities this year involve substance impairment.
Those who choose to drink alcohol, should plan, and use a designated driver or alternate transportation.
