The Kent Police are once again participating in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations traffic enforcement campaign “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”.
This is the annual crack-down on drunk drivers aimed at making roads safer, and it runs from August 17th through September 3rd.
With new research showing fatal crashes involving drunk drivers occur most frequently between the hours of midnight and 3am — when drunk driving crashes claim a life every 23 minutes — the City efforts will be particularly focused on nighttime enforcement.
Drinking and driving never go well together and over the next 2 weeks (thru Labor Day) the City’s Police Officers will be out in full force to help remind you of that.
So come to downtown Kent — eat, drink and be merry — but let someone else drive.
