Local law enforcement is cracking down on drunk driving. The Door County Sheriff’s Office is participating in the Wisconsin DOT Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over initiative until September 4. Chief Deputy Pat McCarty explains the DOT’s initiative behind the event.
McCarty says this initiative is geared towards making sure those who plan to go out first plan a way to get home safely.
The Wisconsin DOT has a “Zero in Wisconsin Drive Sober” app that includes a find-a-ride feature that uses a smartphone’s GPS system to locate alternative transportation, a blood alcohol estimator, designated driver selector, and interactive games to help determine whether someone should give up their car keys.
