Lawrence County Sheriff's Office 'Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over' Enforcement Campaign a Success

Declaring Lawrence County's participation in the nation's annual "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" drunk driving crackdown a major success, the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office reported that two drunk driving arrests, five other significant arrests, and over 50 warnings were issued during the enforcement period, which ran from December 13 - January 2, 2014.

"I am proud of our Deputies for their hard work and dedication to making our region's roadways safer," said Sheriff Brad DeLay

"Drunk driving is more than a reckless choice by a few individuals," Sheriff DeLay said.  "Each year, drunk driving costs the lives of thousands on America's highways.  In 2012, 230 people died in Missouri crashes involving impaired drivers.  That worked out to approximately one impaired driving fatality every 1 1/2 days."

During the 2012 Christmas holiday in Missouri, twelve people were killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes involving impaired drivers or motorcycle riders.

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office joined forces with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and nearly 10,000 law enforcement agencies across the country in this year's "drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign.
