drive sober or get pulled over
[Madison Nebraska] — As we approach Labor Day weekend, law enforcement in Madison County is participating in the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement campaign. During the holiday weekend, law enforcement will work to put an end to drunk driving. In support of law enforcement’s dedication to protecting the lives of residents in their communities, you’ll see increased enforcement on the roads with zero tolerance for those who drive impaired.
In Nebraska, there were over 1,540 alcohol-related crashes last year. That is at least 4 alcohol-related crashes every day of the week. Those crashes are 100% preventable. Drunk driving accounted for approximately 30% of the motor vehicle traffic deaths in 2019.
Madison County officials will be out in full force through during the upcoming Labor Day week and Weekend. Plans including two High-Visibility Enforcement Zones. These will be located at 1st Street and Northeast Nebraska Industrial Highway and 1st Street and Sherwood Road. The date chosen will be on the 29th of August.
“My Deputies do exceptionally well when it comes to finding impaired drivers and they will be out in full force”, said Sheriff Volk.
The enforcement wave begins August 26th and goes through September 7th. Madison County requests that you contact them regarding any suspicion of impaired drivers on the roadway. Madison County always appreciates help from the public. 402-454-2110.
