Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over: Labor Day Campaign to Stop Drunk Driving
NHTSA: Summer’s nearly over, and the Labor Day holiday might be your last chance to enjoy warm weather fun. Let’s make sure we’re enjoying it safely. Whether you’re driving to a cookout, the beach, or on a family trip: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. As the Labor Day holiday is one of the most dangerous on our roads, State and local law enforcement will be making a special effort leading up to and throughout the Labor Day holiday (August 16 – September 4) to protect us all from drunk drivers.
No matter where you drive in the United States, it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 or higher. Yet every year, about one-third of all deaths on our roads involve drunk drivers. In 2015 alone, 10,265 people were killed in drunk driving crashes – that’s one person killed every 51 minutes every day of the year.
