Labor Day "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" Campaign

With the approach of Labor Day, many people will be participating in holiday festivities, some of which may have alcohol. Front Royal Police want to remind those who choose to partake in drinking to plan ahead for a ride. Those who choose to drink and drive should be warned that the police will be looking for you.

August 15, 2014 marked the beginning of the nation "Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign. This campaign will reflect an increased effort to arrest those who choose to drive after drinking. Front Royal Police Chief Norman Shiflett says that drives can expect to see an increased police presence on the roads in Front Royal specifically targeting impaired drivers and those who are over the limit.

During the 2012 Labor Day weekend, 147 people were killed nationwide in crashes that involved a driver with a blood alcohol/concentration (BAC) or .08 or highter. Chief Shiflett says that his department wants to do its part to reduce that number is 2014.
