UNDATED, WI (WTAQ) - State and local law enforcement will kick off its annual “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign on Friday.
Wisconsin State Patrol Major Sandra Huxtable with the Bureau of Transportation Safety says the goal is to crack-down on impaired driving, a leading and preventable cause of fatal crashes in the state.
Major Huxtable says there are programs out there to assist impaired individuals, including state ride programs and a “Drive Sober” application for Android and IPhone users.
The application is free and provides a guideline for a user’s blood alcohol level, based on information entered. It also provides a list of public transportation and designated drivers available, based on location.
Major Huxtable says the app is available at zerowisconsin.gov.
