The national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement campaign begins on Wednesday, August 14 and runs through the Labor Day holiday.
During this campaign, law enforcement across Oklahoma and the nation will be on high-alert looking for drunk drivers.
These days, there is never an excuse to drive drunk. Plan ahead, designate a sober driver before you head out. Know what other options you have to get home safe like calling a cab, family member, or ride-share service such as Lyft or Uber.
In 2018, 375 people were killed in alcohol and/or drug-related crashes in Oklahoma. That's at least 375 family members, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, friends and coworkers who were killed. All because someone choose to drive while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
Before you head to the lake, the bar, or to your friend's place, make sure you have a plan to get home safely.
Camping for the weekend? Make sure you have all the supplies you need before you start drinking so you don't have to make a run back to the store.
The message is simple: Drive sober, or get pulled over.
