Holiday travel expected to be down

Local law enforcement encourages travelers to take the proper precautions for holiday travel this week, as the traffic volume is expected to decrease significantly compared to past years. AAA predicts that auto travel will be down nearly 30 percent from this Wednesday through January 3.   Door County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Pat McCarty suggests keeping an eye on the weather if you need to travel over the holidays.



Chief Deputy McCarty adds that local, and other law enforcement agencies, are engaging in the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign that is currently in effect through New Year’s.  He advises people that will be drinking to find arrangements to get home, like a designated driver. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that drunk driving takes the lives of more than 10,000 people every year in the United States.
