The Wauseon Police Department will join departments across Fulton County to get drunk drivers off the roads with the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign.
The special enforcement effort will run August 16 through September 2. As summer ends and families hit the road for one last holiday, officers will be out protecting motorists from drunk and drugged drivers. Impaired driving continues to be one of the most harmful crimes in Ohio. Hundreds of innocent men, women and children’s lives were taken by a drunk driver last year in Ohio and that is unacceptable.
According to the Ohio Department of Public Safety, 42 percent of the fatal crashes on Ohio roadways last year involved an impaired driver.
