“Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” / Veterans Upward Bound

“Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”

The “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” Labor Day Mobilization will be in effect from now through September 1 throughout the state as a countermeasure to impaired driving and to help keep drivers safe on the roadways.  Law enforcement departments will be able to intensify traffic patrols with a focus on impaired driving due to Gadsden State Community College’s Community Traffic Safety

Program (CTSP) providing DUI Enforcement Grants to 19 departments in East Central Alabama.  These Federal grant funds are provided through the Alabama Department of Economic & Community Affairs’ Law Enforcement Traffic Safety Division, and through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  For more information contact Melinda Cooper, CTSP coordinator of the East Alabama Highway Safety Office at 256-832-1254 or
