ISP Announces Blitz 72 Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over
Pendleton District to Participate in Impaired Driving Crackdown
Pendleton, Indiana – Beginning today, August 17th, through Monday September 3rd, Indiana State Police Troopers at the Pendleton District will join more than 250 other Indiana law enforcement agencies across the Hoosier state in the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown on impaired and dangerous drivers.
Through Labor Day Monday troopers will work overtime to conduct high-visibility enforcement activities designed specifically to identify impaired drivers. Motorists will also see an increased number of patrols looking for aggressive drivers and unrestrained motorists during the Blitz 72 period.
The Indiana State Police is committed to reducing the number of impaired driving crashes as well as all crashes. We continue to monitor the top causes for crashes and concentrating enforcement efforts on these causes.
Blitz 72, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, is a statewide enforcement effort supported by federal funding allocated to the Indiana State Police from the Traffic Safety division of the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute. To learn more visit www.StopImpairedDriving.org.
The Pendleton District covers the eight counties of Delaware, Madison, Randolph, Henry, Wayne and Union as well as Rush and Fayette counties. Motorists are encouraged to report suspected impaired drivers by calling 9-1-1. Give a vehicle description, location, and direction of travel. Never follow an impaired driver.
