Troopers from the Indiana State Police Putnamville Post will be participating in the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement mobilization. Now through Labor Day, troopers will be conducting overtime patrols, seeking out drunk drivers and showing zero tolerance for anyone driving impaired.
These patrols are supported with funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration distributed by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute.
According to ICJI, in 2018, there were just under 4,000 alcohol-impaired collisions in Indiana, resulting in 83 fatalities. Of those, 48 collisions and one fatality occurred during the Labor Day holiday weekend.
