TPD Launches Aggressive Drunk Driving Enforcement Campaign
Wednesday, August 23, 2006

National Campaign!

City of Titusville Police Department

NEWS RELEASE  

Titusville Police will launch an aggressive drunk driving and traffic enforcement campaign this Friday (August 25th). The campaign will continue through Labor Day weekend. We will be using both marked and un-marked police vehicles for enforcement.

 

Drunk driving is one of America’s deadliest crimes. In fact, during 2004, nearly 13,000 people were killed in highway crashes involving an impaired driver or motorcycle operator with an illegal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher.  The picture for motorcycle operators is particularly bleak.  Forty-one percent of the 1,672 motorcycle operators who died in single-vehicle crashes in 2004 had BAC levels of .08 or higher. 

 

That is why TPD announced today they will be joining with thousands of other law enforcement and highway safety agencies across the nation during August and the Labor Day holiday to launch an aggressive new crackdown on impaired drivers called: Drunk Driving-Over the Limit-Under Arrest!

 

“Make no mistake. Our message is simple. No matter what you drive – a passenger car, pickup, sport utility vehicle or motorcycle – if we catch you driving impaired, we will arrest you. No exceptions. No excuses,” said Commander Tom Barry.  

 

“We will be out in force conducting sobriety checkpoints, saturation patrols and using undercover officers to get more drunk drivers off the road.  We want everyone to play it safe and always designate a sober driver or find a different way home if they have been out drinking,” said Commander Tom Barry.

 

This national crackdown is a comprehensive impaired driving prevention program organized by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that focuses on combining high-visibility enforcement with heightened public awareness through advertising and publicity. 

 

This year’s effort is supported by $11 million in paid-national advertising to help put everyone on notice that if they are caught driving impaired, they will be arrested.
