[ARCHIVED] Police participate in Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign

Drive sober or get pulled over

This holiday season, James City County Police will be out looking for drunk drivers as part of a special year-end Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement mobilization.

Starting now and continuing into the New Year, you will see stepped up enforcement watching closely for anyone who is driving impaired. We want to keep our roads safe for holiday travelers so we will have zero tolerance for drunk driving. 

Nationally, in 2015, there were 10,265 deaths resulting from alcohol related traffic crashes and 5 in James City County. 

James City County drivers are encouraged to follow these tips to keep the holidays safe and happy:

  • If you will be drinking, do not drive! Plan your safe ride home before you start the party. Designate a sober driver ahead of time.
  • If you become intoxicated, do not drive for any reason: call a taxi, Uber, phone a sober friend or family member or use public transportation.  
  • If someone you know has been drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel: take their keys, take them home or help them arrange a safe way home. 
  • If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact your local law enforcement. Your actions could help save someone’s life.

Remember, it is never safe to drink and drive. JCC Police will be looking for drunk drivers. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
