Miller County Sheriff’s Office: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

Local

More drivers on the roads during the holiday season mean more chances for accidents. 

That’s why the Miller County Sheriff’s Office is joining a nationwide effort to encourage safe driving. It’s called Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, and it’s a reminder to designate a driver if you’ve had an alcoholic drink and pay extra attention to the roadways. 

Officials say they will be increasing patrols through the end of the year, and their main goal is to ensure everyone arrives at their destination safely.

“What we would prefer is that we have these deputies out working these dedicated enforcement duties and have absolutely no contact with either a distracted driver or driver under the influence of alcohol,” said Chief Deputy Mark Lewis with the Miller County Sheriff’s Office. 
 
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 11,000 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes nationwide in 2017.
