Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over: Labor Day Crackdown – 8/19/16

Mansfield Township Police Department will be cracking down on drunk drivers as part of the 2016 Labor Day “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign. We have been awarded a grant by the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety for increased DWI enforcement beginning today through September 5th. Holiday weekends bring a surge in drunk driving.  Take action toward ensuring a safe Labor Day for you and those you care about.

Mansfield Township Police Department offers the following advice:

  1. If you plan to drink, designate a driver, someone who will not drink alcohol, before going out.
  2. Take mass transit, a taxi or ask a sober friend to drive you home.
  3. Spend the night where the activity is held.
  4. Always buckle up, every ride, regardless of your seating position in the vehicle. It’s your best defense against an impaired driver.
  5. If you’re intoxicated and traveling on foot, the safest way to get home is to take a cab or have a sober friend or family member drive you to your doorstep.
