More police on patrol for drinking and driving

The Maui Police Department's Traffic Section will be cracking down on impaired driving as part of the annual holiday "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" nationwide campaign.

The objective is to help curb drinking and driving throughout the holiday season.

It started December 15 and runs through January 1.

Troopers will be on the lookout for impaired drivers with high-visibility patrols and at DUI checkpoints, according to Major Edward Hoke, director of PSP's Bureau of Patrol.

The Triple A is anticipating record numbers of people on the roads through the end of the year...that increases the chances of crashes due to impaired driving.

In 2014, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration developed the SaferRide smartphone app in an effort to curb drunk driving by making it easier for users to facilitate a ride home if they have been drinking.

Be responsible. If someone you know is drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel. If you're caught driving impaired by alcohol or drugs, you could face jail time, fines, loss of driver's license, towing fees, and other DUI expenses, totaling $10,000 on average. Numerous crashes can be attributed to unsafe vehicle operations caused by distracted and aggressive driving. Plan ahead. Designate a sober driver before the party begins. Call a taxi, phone a sober friend or family member. "So we will do what it takes to help save lives by keeping our roads safe". Your actions may save someone's life and inaction could cost a life.

Remember, it is never safe to drink and drive. The Drive Sober app can be downloaded for free at: www.zeroinwisconsin.gov/drivesober/.
