A traffic safety event that happens around holiday weekends is starting today.  The Washington County Sheriff’s Office along with the Iowa Department of Public Safety are kicking off their “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign today.  The goal of this program is to find and arrest impaired drivers who put not only themselves but others at risk.

The last campaign held during the week of July 4th saw almost 300 alcohol and drug-related citations issued.  This enforcement program starts today and runs through Wednesday, September 5th.
