TISHOMINGO COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE ARE ARRESTING DRUNK DRIVERS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

 

Remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

 

This holiday season, the Tishomingo County Sheriff’s Office will work around the clock to keep vehicle drivers and passengers safe as they search for drunk drivers.  From December 14, 2017 to January 1, 2018, law enforcement is partnering with the Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in a special year-end Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement mobilization to get drunk drivers off the street and to spread the word about the dangers of impaired driving. 

“This holiday season, drivers will notice increased enforcement watching closely for anyone who is driving impaired,” said Tishomingo County Sheriff John D. Daugherty.  “It is vital that we keep our roads and our travelers safe, not just at the holidays, but every day.  With extra travelers on the roads, and people attending holiday parties, we will likely see an uptick in drunk driving.  We’ll be arresting anyone who breaks this life-saving law.”

The holidays are a special time in America, full of excitement and endless festivities.  Oftentimes, these celebrations bring higher numbers of drunk drivers to the roads, endangering those drivers and others.  Drunk driving can have deadly, devastating consequences.

“This should be a time of happy merrymaking, a time for friends and families to come together for endless laughs, good food, and happy memories”, said Sheriff John Daugherty.  “We are committed to doing whatever it takes to help save lives by keeping drunk drivers off the roads.  Choosing to drink and drive is a selfish choice – one that will see harsh consequences.”

Drunk driving offenders often serve jail time, lose their driver’s license, are charged higher insurance rates, and pay dozens of other unanticipated expenses ranging from attorney’s fees, court costs, car towing and repairs, and lost wages due to time off from work.  But the ultimate cost of drunk driving is causing a traffic crash that injuries or kills.

Follow these tips to stay safe on the road this holiday season:

  •       Remember that it is never okay to drive drunk. Even if you’ve had only one alcoholic beverage, designate a sober driver or plan to use public transportation to get home.

 

  •       If you see a drunk driver on the road, contact 911 or the Tishomingo County Sheriff’s Office at 662-423-7000.

 

  •       Have a friend who is about to drink and drive? Take the keys away and make arrangements to get your friend home safely.

 

 

Remember, it is never safe to drink and drive.  The Tishomingo County Sheriff’s Office will be looking for drunk drivers.  Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
