The Washington Traffic Safety Commission announces the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” holiday campaign. As part of the campaign, extra officers will be canvassing roadways between November 21 and January 1 throughout Snohomish County searching for impaired drivers.
Washington Traffic Safety Commission Director Darrin Grondel urges drivers to plan ahead. “Don’t let a DUI ruin your holidays. Before you leave home for a holiday party, think about how everyone can get home safely. Designate a sober driver, take a taxi, stay the night.”
Most Snohomish County police agencies will actively participate in “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,” including Monroe, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office and the Washington State Patrol with assistance from the Washington State Liquor Control Board.
The Snohomish County DUI & Target Zero Traffic Safety Task Force organizes and supports this enforcement effort.
