Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over
The Iowa Highway Patrol, along with several local law enforcement agencies are gearing up for the "Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over" campaign. Trooper Vince Kurtz covers the Spencer district. He says the national campaign started yesterday and runs through Labor Day. It is an effort to curtail traffic accidents and fatalities.
Kurtz says you don't have to be legally drunk in order to have your judgment affected.
He says even after one drink, a driver may be slow on the reflexes, or making the wrong assumption that he may be able to have enough room and time to pass a vehicle when another on-coming vehicle is approaching.
