Galloway Police Participate in Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Campaign

(GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP) — Law enforcement officials from Galloway Township will be cracking down on drivers impaired by alcohol or drugs as part of the annual end of year “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” statewide campaign.  Beginning December 9, 2016 and continuing through January 1, 2017, local and state law enforcement officials will conduct saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints looking for motorists who may be driving while intoxicated.

The national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” effort endeavors to raise awareness about the dangers of impaired driving through a combination of high-visibility enforcement and public education. “During the last five years New Jersey has experienced approximately 41,000 alcohol involved crashes resulting in more than 800 fatalities," said Lt. Rich Barber.  “This is a critical law enforcement program that can save lives during a time of the year when impaired driving traditionally increases by nearly 10 percent.”
