LOWER TOWNSHIP – The Lower Township Police Department will be cracking down on drunken drivers as part of the annual “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign. Continuing through Jan. 2, local and state law enforcement officials will conduct patrols and sobriety checkpoints looking for motorists who may be driving while intoxicated. The national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” effort tries to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving through a combination of high-visibility enforcement and public education.

Patrick Greene. “This initiative brings attention to the serious consequences of drunk driving and the grave danger those who choose to drink and drive pose to all who share the road with them.”
