GREENVILLE – The Greenville Police Department will join local and national law enforcement officers and highway safety advocates across the country for the 2014 National Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign. During the mobilization, officers will be cracking down on motorists. The campaign will run through Sept. 1, both day and night.

Did You Know?

Drunk driving is often a symptom of a larger problem: alcohol misuse and abuse.

Alcohol-impaired motor vehicle crashes cost more than an estimated $37 billion annually.

In 2012, more than 10,000 people died in alcohol-impaired driving crashes – one every 51 minutes.

Law enforcement will be cracking down on impaired drivers around the clock. You can expect to get a ride to the police station at the very least. “No excuses and no exception,” said Greenville Police Chief Dennis Butts.

More than 900 law enforcement partners around Ohio, including the Ohio State Highway Patrol, will be aggressively enforcing the zero tolerance policy.

The Greenville Police Department urges everyone to drive sober for you, your family, friends and strangers.
