Driving after drinking or using drugs never ends well. The Middletown Police Department reminds motorists that extra patrols will be out around the holidays to curb DUI cases.
This holiday season is just around the corner. As we prepare for festivities with family and friends, we want to remind all drivers the dangers of drunk driving.
Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over -- You have to choose your role before drinking begins: will you drink or will you drive? Remember, even if you just had one drink and you think you are "okay to drive", you could still be driving impaired.
Drive High. Get a DUI. -- Drug-impaired driving is also a problem on our nation's highways. Like drunk driving, drug-impaired driving is also impaired driving. So, whether legally or illegally obtained, driving under the influence of drugs poses a threat to the driver, vehicle passengers, and other road users.
