WOODLAND PARK, NJ - The Woodland Park Police Department will be participating in the year-end "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” enforcement campaign, which is running until Jan. 1.

Local and state law enforcement officials are conducting saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints, looking for motorists who may be driving while intoxicated. The department is adding extra individual enforcement details and DWI checkpoints to join in this effort funded by the Drunk Driving Enforcement Fund.

The national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” effort aims to raise awareness about the dangers of impaired driving through a combination of high-visibility enforcement and public education.

The department offers the following advice for the holiday season:

  • Take mass transit, a taxicab, or ask a sober friend to drive you home.
  • Spend the night where the activity or party is held.
  • If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact law enforcement. Your actionsmay save someone’s life, and inaction could cost a life.
  • Always buckle up - every ride. It’s your best defense against an impaired driver.
  • If you are intoxicated and traveling on foot, the safest way to get home is to take a cab or have a sober friend or family member drive or escort you to your doorstep.
  • Be responsible. If someone you know is drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel
