Naperville Police Department to Motorists: Drive Sober This Holiday Weekend

-

With New Year’s festivities rapidly approaching, the Naperville Police Department will continue to participate in a statewide impaired driving awareness and enforcement campaign now through Jan. 3, 2022.

“Driving impaired, whether under the influence of alcohol or drugs, can have catastrophic consequences and is illegal in every state,” said Naperville Police Sgt. Rick Krakow. “Not only do you put yourself at risk, but the lives of others as well.” 

If your celebration will involve alcohol or other impairing substances, plan ahead for a sober ride home. Designate a sober driver or use public transportation or a ride-share service to get home safely.

A few tips to help ensure a safe and joyful holiday season…

  • If you see an impaired driver on the road, pull over and call the Naperville Police Department.
  • Have a friend who is about to drive impaired? Take their keys and help them get home safely.

  • Always buckle up! It’s your best defense against an impaired driver.

This two-week holiday enforcement effort has been made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
