Crackdown on Drunk Drivers to Begin
Posted: August 18, 2017
The Randolph Police Department will be cracking down on drunk drivers as part of the 2017 “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” statewide Labor Day crackdown.
Beginning August 18, 2017 and running through September 4, 2017, law enforcement officers will be out in full force, taking part in a nationwide effort to combat drunk and impaired driving.
The Randolph police wish everyone a safe and happy Labor Day weekend and would like to remind everyone:
- If you plan to drink, designate a driver, someone who will not drink alcohol, before going out.
- Take mass transit, a taxi, or ask a sober friend to drive you home.
- Spend the night where the activity is held.
- Always buckle up, every ride, regardless of your seating position in the vehicle. It’s your best defense against an impaired driver.
- If you’re intoxicated and traveling on foot, the safest way to get home is to take a cab or have a sober friend or family member drive you to your doorstep.
Randolph’s police department is one of a number of police agencies in Morris County to receive a grant from the Division of Highway Traffic Safety to cover the cost of the enforcement campaign.
