YOU BETTER WATCH OUT, I’M TELLING YOU WHY: COPS ARE CRACKING DOWN ON DRUNK DRIVING - Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over
Addison County, Vermont — This time of year, with all the holiday parties and festive occasions, many partygoers will be drinking. If you’re celebrating with alcohol this holiday season, Addison County Law Enforcement Agencies has a message for you: "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over".
Due to the increase in drunk-driving-related fatalities around the holidays each year, law enforcement agencies across America will be out in force December 10th - January 1, 2015 — actively searching for drunk drivers.
The facts are grim: in December 2012 there were 830 people killed in crashes involving at least one driver or motorcycle operator with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher; 26 of those deaths occurred on Christmas Day. On average, a third (31%) of all crash fatalities in America involves drunk driving. But on Christmas day 2012, the percentage jumps to 36 percent.
