Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

2013 Holiday Crackdown

December 13 - January 1

The holiday season is a particularly dangerous time on the roads. Alcohol-impaired driving claimed 10,322 lives last year, an increase of 4.6 percent compared with 2011. Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve, as many as 900 people could lose their lives in drunk driving crashes nationwide.

That’s why State Highway Safety Offices are working with their state and local law enforcement partners this holiday season to apprehend drunk drivers and remind all drivers to Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. See below for a list of specific state activities.
