Drive sober or get pulled over

Monday, August 14, 2017

During all of 2016, impaired drivers were involved in crashes that resulted in 277 deaths and another 371 serious injuries.

These crashes are not only tragic, they are completely preventable.

That is why extra DUI patrols will be out statewide from August 18 through September 4. The patrols will be looking for drunk or drugged drivers, and will uphold all traffic laws.

In north King County, the Lake Forest Park, Seattle, and Shoreline Police Departments, the Washington State Patrol, and the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board will be canvassing the roadways in search of impaired drivers.

The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign is designed to encourage all drivers to make the right choice. 

Designate a sober, drug-free driver, take a cab, catch a ride share, Uber, Lyft or walk with a friend.

These extra patrols are part of Target Zero — striving to end traffic deaths and serious injuries in Washington by 2030.
