This Halloween, sheriff deputies will crack down on drunk drivers throughout the county with an aggressive “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” enforcement effort, and they are giving a fair warning to all partygoers: Keep the party off the road!
“If you celebrate with alcohol, you don’t belong behind the wheel. The scariest part of Halloween is not the spooky costumes and scary pranks, it’s the impaired drivers. All too often, partygoers don’t plan ahead and choose to drive impaired, but a costume can’t disguise drunk driving,” said Sheriff Mike Mock.
A sober and safe ride after the party is the best treat you can give yourself and everyone else on the road this Halloween. To keep safe, the sheriff’s office recommends these tips:
·Before the Halloween festivities begin, plan a way to safely get home at the end of the night.
·Always designate a sober driver.
·If you are impaired, call a sober friend or family member, or call a transportation service.
