Law enforcement clamping down on drunk driving

As celebrations occur over the holiday weekend, local law enforcement wants you to know that they will be enforcing the National Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign that continues through New Year's Day.  Door County Chief Deputy Pat McCarty says hopes are to educate people about the dangers and consequences of drinking drunk and high.  He asks anyone that is driving to act responsibly, and to utilize a designated driver if necessary.


McCarty adds that local law enforcement will be stepping up patrols through the weekend to get any impaired drivers off the roadways.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, one-third of traffic fatalities during the holidays last year were drunk-driving related.  The Tavern League of Wisconsin offers the SafeRide program that will give you a ride home if you feel you have had too much to drink.  You can find more information on SafeRide with this link.
