The Quincy Police were awarded a grant from the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security’s Office of Grants and Research to increase the number of impaired driving patrols during the holiday season. We will join other departments across the state in the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement mobilization.
“When an impaired driver is behind the wheel, everyone is at risk – passengers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and other motorists sharing the road” said Captain John Dougan. “These funds will increase the number of impaired driving patrols over the holidays. Regardless of the type or level of impairment, if a driver is operating the vehicle in a dangerous manner, they will be stopped.”
“Arranging for a sober ride home before celebrating should be a part of everyone’s plans this holiday season,” said Jeff Larason, Director of the OGR Highway Safety Division. “We want all drivers to recognize the responsibility they have to drive safely and to avoid getting behind the wheel if they’re impaired. Remember - If you feel different, you drive different.”
Please plan ahead. Remember.... Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over
We wish everyone a safe and happy New Year!
