Holiday Crack Down on Drunk Drivers
Posted: August 24, 2005
With more people expected to be traveling on roadways throughout Randolph Township this Labor Day holiday, law enforcement will be out in full force conducting sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols to protect citizens from this deadly crime, Chief Dean Kazaba announced recently.
“Our message is simple…You Drink & Drive. You Lose,” said Randolph Township Police Chief Dean Kazaba. “We encourage anyone planning on drinking alcohol to be responsible and designate a sober driver. With checkpoints and roving patrols, chances are if you drive impaired this holiday, you will be arrested.”
“Driving with a blood alcohol level of .08% and above is illegal in New Jersey,” said Sgt. Will Yarzab, Randolph Township Police Department Traffic Safety Bureau Supervisor. “Violators will be spending their money on court, lawyers and towing fees instead of on the last days of their summer vacations.”
The Randolph Police reminds everyone:
- Be responsible and don’t risk it…you will be caught.
- If you plan to drink, choose a designated driver before going out.
- Take mass transit, a taxicab, or ask a sober friend to drive you home.
- Spend the night where the activity is being held.
- Report impaired drivers to law enforcement.
- Always buckle up—it’s your best defense against an impaired driver.
Have a safe and happy Labor Day Weekend!
