DRIVE SOBER OR GET PULLED OVER CAMPAIGN
Date: August 14, 2017
Contact: Sergeant Alan Witte 920-648-2354 firstname.lastname@example.org
To deter impaired driving, The Lake Mills Police Department to participate in ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ initiative Aug. 18 – Sept. 4.
Lake Mills Police Department will join hundreds of law enforcement agencies across Wisconsin to combat drunken driving during the annual “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” initiative from Aug. 18 to Sept. 4.
Drivers impaired by alcohol, prescription medication, or other drugs endanger everyone. During the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over initiative, our officers will patrol in greater numbers and for longer hours to help prevent impaired drivers from killing or injuring themselves or an innocent victim.
Rather than risk a drunken driving arrest or crash, the Lake Mills Police Department urges you to follow these common sense suggestions:
Choose a sober designated driver before you start drinking.
If you’re feeling buzzed, you likely are over the 0.08 BAC limit and should not drive.
Take mass transit, a taxicab or ask a sober friend to drive you home.
The Zero In Wisconsin traffic safety program has a free “Drive Sober” mobile app that can be downloaded by visiting zeroinwisconsin.gov
Some taverns and restaurants have programs to provide patrons with a safe ride home. Visit www.tlw.org/ and click on Safe Ride.
Report impaired drivers to law enforcement by calling 911. Provide as much detail as possible on the driver, vehicle, and location.

A reminder to dump all of your medications (prescription and over-the-counter) into a baggie before bringing them to the police department for disposal as we no longer take the bottles they come in. If your medication is in the "punch put packs" you may leave them in that. We do still take needles; however, if you have a biohazard container full of needles, that should be taken to the Light and Water building at 155 S. Industrial
