Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

VENTNOR — Ventnor Police will be cracking down on drivers impaired by alcohol or drugs as part of the annual end of year “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” statewide campaign.

Beginning Dec. 2 and continuing through Jan. 1, 2023, local, county, and state law enforcement officials will conduct saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints looking for motorists who may be driving while intoxicated.
The national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” effort aims to raise awareness about the dangers of impaired driving through a combination of high-visibility enforcement and public education.
“During the last five years New Jersey has experienced more than 33,000 alcohol involved crashes resulting in 662 fatalities,” Ventnor Police Chief Joe Fussner said. “This is a critical law enforcement program that can save lives during a time of the year when social gatherings with alcohol increase the risk of impaired driving.”
