Could the holidays get any busier? Between your regular work schedule, family commitments and holiday gatherings – who has time to think about safe driving? You do! The Office of Highway Safety would like to remind everyone that safe driving should never take a holiday.
The Office of Highway Safety has coordinated another wave of overtime Aggressive Driving enforcement and is set to conduct enforcement from October 23rd to November 3rd. Law enforcement agencies participating in the enforcement include Delaware State Police in all three counties, along with the Georgetown, Milford, Newark, New Castle County, Seaford, and Wilmington police departments.
There have been a total of 198 DUI arrests made since June 29th as part of the Checkpoint Strikeforce campaign. There have been over 3,800 DUI arrests made statewide since January.
Officers arrested 6 individuals for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) of alcohol and/or drugs over NASCAR weekend as part of the Checkpoint Strikeforce campaign.
Do you still remember how it was when you were a young and novice driver? Both hands on the wheel, both eyes on the road, mind completely on the task of driving – it took all your senses to drive! This year, join the Office of Highway Safety in getting BACK TO BASICS. It means focusing on driving the car instead of multi-tasking. Remember, experience does not necessarily make a better driver. Drive safely. Arrive Alive.
