Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office’s Fourth of July Holiday ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ Enforcement Campaign a Success

 

Lawrence County, Missouri – Declaring Lawrence County’s participation in the national Fourth of July Holiday “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” substance–impaired driving crackdown a major success, Sheriff Brad DeLay reported that one substance–impaired driving arrest and four citations were made during the enforcement period, which ran from July 3-5, 2015. 95 warnings were issued for various other traffic violations.

 

“I am proud of our Deputies for their hard work and dedication to making our region’s roadways safer,” said Sheriff DeLay.

 

“Substance–Impaired driving is more than a reckless choice by a few individuals,” Sheriff DeLay said. “Each year, substance–impaired driving costs the lives of thousands on America’s highways. “In 2014, 197 people were killed and 681 seriously injured on Missouri’s highways in crashes that involved at least one substance-impaired driver.”

 

During the 2014 Fourth of July holiday in Missouri, 170 substance–impaired driving arrests were made statewide.

 

The Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office joined forces with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and nearly 10,000 law enforcement agencies across the country in this year’s Fourth of July holiday “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign.
