MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont is cracking down on impaired drivers over the holidays, joining the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” national campaign.

The campaign starts Friday and runs through Jan. 3.

Officials say law enforcement agencies across Vermont will conduct extra patrols and sobriety checkpoints to detect impaired drivers. Police will also use law enforcement drug recognition experts to evaluate suspected drug impaired drivers.

Vermont State Police Lt. John Flannigan says “It’s time for all drivers to get the message.” He says driving impaired is a choice that puts others at risk of injury or death. He advises people who plan on drinking at a holiday gathering to plan ahead and have a designated driver or use public transportation.
