Press Release: Tallahassee Police Department
“Everyone should be aware that their Halloween disguises won't make them invisible to Tallahassee Police Officers who will crack down on drunk drivers throughout the city with an aggressive Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement effort,” said Interim Chief Tom Coe.
Night time is always a dangerous time on the road, but Halloween can be particularly scary, if you get behind the wheel drunk.
To keep safe this Halloween, TPD recommends these simple tips:
- Plan a safe way home before the festivities begin.
- If hosting a party, offer non-alcoholic beverage options for your guests.
- Before drinking, designate a sober driver, and leave your car keys at home.
- If you’re impaired, take a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation so you are sure to get home safely.
- If you see a drunk driver on the road, contact your local law enforcement.
The only scary thing tonight should be a child’s sugar level, not a driver’s alcohol level. Drive safe, drive sober!
