‘Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over’ A Success

As part of the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign, the Naperville Police Department was out this holiday season working to save lives by keeping drunk drivers off the roads.

From December 16, 2016 through January 1, 2017, Naperville Police conducted more than 82 traffic stops and arrested zero (0) drivers who had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over the legal limit of 0.08. Fourteen drivers and passengers received citations for not wearing seat belts.

“We’re hopeful that the positive results of this most recent campaign mean that people are taking this critical drive sober message to heart,” said Naperville Police Sgt. Derek Zook. “No one should ever drive impaired by alcohol or drugs, and we’ll continue to enforce this as earnestly as we always have. Always hand the keys to a sober driver or face the consequences. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.”
