Drive Sober Results

The Traffic Safety Coordinator for Fond du Lac County says the recent “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign led to 126 traffic stops during the enforcement effort. Sheriff’s Captain Ryan Waldschmidt says it’s a success in that four people were arrested for drunken driving. Waldschmidt says if on the other hand you go by the goal of zero drunken drivers on the road it wasn’t entirely successful. There were also 6 safety belt violations, 22 speeding violations, 12 other types of violations, and three other types of arrest. In addition to the Sheriff’s Department, police departments from Fond du Lac, North Fond du Lac, and Ripon also participated in the campaign, which ran from August 19th through September 5th.
