The North Riverside and Riverside police departments will begin their “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” holiday season drunk driving crackdown on Dec. 18, an effort that will continue through Jan. 3, 2016.

Due to the increase in impaired driving-related fatalities around the holidays each year, law enforcement agencies across America will be actively searching for and arresting drunk drivers from and into the New Year. Seat belt law violators will also be a focus as well.

The traffic enforcement campaign is funded by grants through the Illinois Department of Transportation.
