From Aug. 17 -Sept. 5, JCC Police will commit extra enforcement to deter impaired driving as part of the NHTSA’s Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over national enforcement mobilization.
During this time, you may notice increased police presence patrolling for anyone who is driving impaired (influenced by alcohol, drugs, etc.). The Department aims to keep roads safe for the start of the school year and Labor Day travelers.
Nationally, on Labor Day weekend in 2019, there were 451 traffic crash deaths with 38% of these deaths involving a drunk driver. Annually, over 10,000 people are killed by drunk driving.
