Holiday road travel expected to spike, Drive Sober campaign underway 

Local law enforcement encourages travelers to take the proper precautions for holiday travel this week as significant increases are expected compared to last year. AAA predicts that travel on the roads for the holidays will be the third busiest ever since tracking began in 2000. 

An estimated 102 million travelers are expected to hit the road starting Friday through January 2. That is two million more people than last year during the period of travel. The Door County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Pat McCarty suggests keeping an eye on the weather if you need to travel over the holidays and allowing plenty of time to reach your destination.



Chief Deputy McCarty adds that local and other law enforcement agencies are engaging in the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign currently in effect through New Year’s. He advises people drinking to find arrangements to get home, like a designated driver.
