Prince William County Police Department is enforcing their “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” sobriety campaign, beginning on August 19.
According to a release, more than 10,000 people are killed in alcohol-related crashes every year in the United States.
“Drunk driving is reckless and preventable, and the upcoming sobriety campaign is meant to get that point across. Drivers continue to break the law by driving impaired, putting thousands of travelers at risk every day,” stated a release.
The campaign will run through the Labor Day holiday on September 3.
“Prince William County Police, as well as law enforcement agencies throughout Virginia and the region, are targeting this period because holiday weekends bring a surge in drunk-driving violations,” stated a release.
