Every 51 minutes someone is killed in a drunk-driving crash. Over the Labor Day weekend those fatalities increase to 1 in every 34 minutes. Drunk driving is one of the deadliest and most often committed crimes, yet it is preventable. In a nationwide effort to end drunk driving and save lives, police will be aggressively targeting drunk drivers from August 15 through September 1, as part of the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign. This campaign aims to increase public awareness and provide highly visible enforcement, in order to decrease the number of drunk drivers on the road. School Training Solutions (STS) urges you to spread the message, and take some simple steps to prevent a tragedy. Plan ahead and designate a sober driver.
