Riverside, Illinois – Results are in from the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over holiday crackdown on drunk drivers.
During the holiday season, reducing the deadly dangers from drunk drivers was a top priority as the Riverside Police Department was out in force to arrest those who put themselves and others on the road at risk.
From Dec. 19, 2014 to Jan. 4, 2015, the Riverside Police Department made 2 DUI arrests during the Grant and 6 more DUI arrests on DUI situation patrol.
“Drunk driving is deadly and people can get too wrapped up in the excitement of the holidays and make some seriously bad decisions,” said Sergeant Jeffrey Miller. “The bottom line is if you have been drinking alcohol, you don’t belong behind the wheel. Never drink and drive.”
The recent law enforcement crackdown was funded by federal traffic safety funds through the Illinois Department of Transportation and is part of the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket campaigns.
