The Beverly Hills Police Department will be participating in the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign from Aug. 19-Sept. 5, deploying additional officers to ensure safety on the roads.
The enforcement is being conducted in partnership with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and other law enforcement agencies.
“We want our community members to understand that it’s our first priority to keep people safe, so we’re asking everyone to plan ahead if they know they’ll be out drinking,” BHPD Chief Mark G. Stainbrook said. “We need commitment from our community members that they’ll keep the streets free of drunk drivers so that everyone can have a safe summertime and Labor Day holiday. This is an awareness effort to get the message out that drunk driving is illegal and it takes lives. Let’s make this a partnership between law enforcement and drivers. Help us protect the community and put an end to this senseless behavior. Drunk driving is not acceptable behavior, especially when there are so many safe alternatives to get you home safely.”
