This Labor Day, remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

Rockford Police Department stepping up traffic safety efforts

As families and friends plan their end-of-summer celebrations for Labor Day weekend,
the Rockford Police Department is partnering with the Illinois State Police and law enforcement across
the state to stop impaired driving and help save lives.

The high-visibility “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” enforcement campaign runs from Aug. 19 through the
early-morning hours of Sept. 6. During this period, law enforcement will be stepping up efforts focused
on impaired, unbuckled and distracted drivers.

Before the party starts, remember to designate a sober driver and don’t let friends or family members
drive impaired. Other important tips include:

 If you’re hosting, make sure all your guests designate a sober driver in advance, or arrange ride-
sharing or another sober ride home. Also, serve lots of food and include non-alcoholic beverages

at the party.
 If you do not have a designated driver, ask a sober friend for a ride home, call a cab/ride share, or
stay where you are and sleep it off until you are sober.
 Don’t let friends leave your sight if you think they are about to drive impaired.
 Always buckle up – it is your best defense in a crash.

The Labor Day “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign is made possible by federal highway safety
funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
