Oklahoma Plays Part in Nationwide Fight Against Impaired Driving
In collaboration with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) end of summer battle against impaired driving, Oklahoma is ramping up efforts across state and county lines to assist the clampdown. The NHTSA plan is named “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and it’s in effect August 19-September 5. According to the administration, the nationwide campaign blends “high-visibility enforcement and public awareness messaging.”
Law officials and state safety offices joined forces during the final weeks of summer, with the height of the project’s efforts during the upcoming high traffic and party laden Labor Day weekend. Each state’s approach is unique depending on its territory, circumstances and resources, so individual measures are profiled on the NHTSA website.
In Oklahoma, over 260 law enforcement groups are slated to participate in this season’s elevated enforcement effort. The state is utilizing the NHTSA’s national motto, “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,” in their state messaging. The action features both earned and paid media, in addition to opportunities for groups to gain incentives for their involvement. With help from Safe Communities organizations and the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office, Oklahoma is hosting publicity functions in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Miami and other surrounding areas to promote safety awareness.
The program is a crucial step in battling impaired driving across the country during a key period but the issue will still remain after the initiative is finished.
