The Ticket Crusade In New Jersey For DWIs Has Begun – 114 Police Departments Received Grants To Help With The Effort

As the holiday season approaches, police all over New Jersey have begun their crusade on taking down individuals who are driving while intoxicated and impaired. The campaign with the attached slogan “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” will be in effect until January 1st, 2021. According to the Division of Highway Traffic Safety, drivers who plan on celebrating should be aware of reinforced patrols and more checkpoints.

Last year, police officers in New Jersey made 1,380 DWI arrests involving drugs and/or alcohol during the “Driver Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign. Law enforcement has stated that 129 people were killed in drunk driving accidents the previous year in New Jersey. Furthermore, out of the 10,000 people who were killed throughout the US, 559 of those fatal incidents occurred in New Jersey.

As a result, the Division of Highway Traffic Safety has allocated $656,340 in grants to help 114 law enforcement agencies in the state. Eric Heitmann, the director of the Division of Highway Traffic Safety, said, “Our mission is to ensure that travelers on New Jersey roadways reach their destinations safely — especially during the holiday season when crash risks increase. We pursue this mission through programs like ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ that raise public awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and provide law enforcement with funding for enhanced enforcement.”
