The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will be stepping up DWI enforcement this July 4th Holiday season.
Beginning this week the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will intensify the enforcement of impaired driving laws and there will be specifically designated deputies patrolling the streets looking for impaired drivers.
Working in conjunction with the No Refusal efforts of the District Attorney’s Office, Sheriff Tommy Gage said, “Drive drunk, you will go to jail and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will continue to build partnerships designed to reduce the incidence of impaired driving and will work to lower the number of deaths on the roadways and highways in the county.”
The problem of drunk driving will not solve itself. Each person can do something about this deadly problem. WHAT CAN YOU DO TO STOP DRUNK DRIVING?
If you’ve been drinking, DON’T DRIVE. Designate a sober driver beforehand.
Friends don’t let friends drive drunk. Take their keys and get them a safe ride home.
Be a role model to young people.
Don’t provide alcohol to anyone under 21, and step in if others do.
Don’t ride with anyone who is driving and has been drinking.
Ask your children and other young people to call you if their uncomfortable in any situation.
When hosting a gathering, be clear with your guests about your house rules on drinking and driving. Offer a nights stay or a safe ride home to those who may be impaired.
If you see an impaired driver, don’t hesitate to call 911 and report the driver. Stay on the line and provide the dispatcher with good descriptive information. Location, Color and LP of the car.
Sheriff Tommy Gage said, “Don’t Drink and Drive. One drunk driver is too many.”
