Each year around Labor Day weekend, we focus on reducing the number of impaired drivers on the roads and saving lives through public education and enforcement activities. In South Dakota, the Office of Highway Safety has developed strong messaging about the dangers of impaired driving, coupled with checkpoints and increased officers on the road, aimed to drastically reduce the toll of driving while impaired.
The Union County Sheriff's Office will be out in force for three weeks looking for drinking and/or impaired drivers. The enforcement effort is titled, "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over!" The Union County Sheriff's Office, in conjunction with other agencies will be putting extra patrols out on the streets targeting drunk and impaired drivers. We will begin our enforcement efforts August 19th, 2020 and run through September 7th, 2020. Funding for this project is in the form of a mini-grant applied for and awarded by the South Dakota Office of Highway Safety. We want to keep our communities safe and if you suspect a drunk/impaired driver, please contact your local law enforcement agency. Thank you.
Donations are used for meth training and education
