Laurel County, KY - Sheriff John Root is reporting that the Laurel County Sheriff's office is participating in the statewide "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign.
The "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign began on December 14, and will run the Christmas, and New Year's holidays concluding on January 1st, 2017.
This effort is conducted annually leading up to the end of year holidays for citizens. During this period, officers statewide including Laurel County Sheriff's deputies participate in this endeavor in an attempt to concentrate on removing impaired drivers from Laurel County roads and statewide.
Deputies also will be concentrating on seat belt violations, child safety seat violations, speeding and distracted driving. Our goal is to help keep Laurel County families safe, and to make Laurel County roads safer during the holidays, and everyday.
Sheriff Root reminds citizens to always drive defensively, and always expect the unexpected.
Deputies will continue to aggressively remove impaired drivers from Laurel County roads each and every day.
