OHS wants to remind motorists as they travel this holiday season to buckle up, be patient and slow down, and always use a designated driver.
Wednesday, November 26th marks the beginning of the Delaware Office of Highway Safety’s annual Safe Family Holiday Campaign. Safe Family Holiday enforcement activities over the next six weeks will include 30 law enforcement agencies statewide conducting overtime patrols focusing on speeding, impaired driving, and seat belt use.
Nine more Delaware police officers have been certified at Drug Recognition Experts (DRE) to combat DUI on Delaware roadways.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), if drunk driving was eliminated more than 10,000 lives would be spared nationally each year. That is why the Delaware Office of Highway Safety (OHS) and law enforcement agencies are participating in the national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” high-visibility enforcement campaign that is running from August 15 through September 1.
One Checkpoint Strikeforce DUI checkpoint is scheduled to take place Friday August 1st, in Newark and will be conducted by the Delaware State Police. DUI saturation patrols will also be conducted this weekend by Harrington PD and Seaford PD.
