Drive Sober or get Pulled Over

Drunk driving is a problem on our nation’s roads every day, but it’s more prevalent during the holidays.  So, drive sober or get pulled over, says Clayton Police Chief Andy Strait.  “We urge you to find a sober driver if you are going to drink.  Do not drive.  If you go to someone’s house for a get-together and you don’t have a driver, stay there or call a friend.  The last thing we want is to have a tragedy.  So, I urge everyone to just use common sense, don’t drink and drive.  The State Patrol will be out.  Rabun County Law Enforcement will be out.  You will go to jail if you get caught drinking and driving.  Worse you could hurt or kill someone you know or yourself.  So, we urge everyone to just be safe.”  Every day, about 37 people in the United States die in drunk-driving crashes, that’s one person every 39 minutes. These deaths are all preventable with a sober driver.
