Law enforcement agencies in north Florida, Alabama, and Georgia met at state borders and will work together over the Labor Day weekend to encourage safe driving across the nation, taking part in the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown on impaired driving to help save lives. In an effort to reduce fatalities, law enforcement is taking a “no tolerance” policy toward drivers who are caught impaired, unbuckled, or speeding. Through the combined efforts of law enforcement and other highway safety partners, the “Hands Across the Border” campaign saves lives through education, community awareness, and enforcement.
The national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” impaired driving crackdown is a prevention program organized by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that focuses on combining high-visibility enforcement with heightened public awareness through advertising and publicity.
