With the holidays in full swing, Hinsdale Police are partnering with the Illinois Department of Transportation to remind motorists about the dangers of impaired driving with a “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Drive High. Get a DUI.” traffic safety campaign through Jan. 2.
“During the campaign, you can expect to see extra safety patrols,” Deputy Chief Thomas Lillie said. “We will show zero tolerance for alcohol and drug-impaired driving to help ensure everyone makes it to and from their holiday festivities safely.”
Before the holiday fun begins, remember these tips.
• Designate a sober driver or make a plan to use public transportation or a ride-sharing service to get home safely.
• If you see an impaired driver on the road, pull over and call 911.
• Have a friend who is about to drive impaired? Take the keys away and make arrangements to get them home safely.
• Always buckle up!
The holiday enforcement campaign is administered by IDOT with federal highway safety funds managed by NHTSA.
