Guam - With a holiday season full of company parties and other celebration, the Department of Public Works' Office of Highway Safety and island law enforcement is focusing more efforts to keep Guam's roadways safe by preventing drunk and drugged driving.
Today at Adelup, the Governor's Office officially kicked off the "Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over" Impaired Driving Prevention Campaign, bringing awareness to the national campaign. DPW highway safety coordinator Cil Javier told KUAM News, "We want to let the public out there know that please if you consume alcohol, get a designated driver, don't get behind the wheel because it's being enforced and you will get booked and confined."
The month-long campaign will have Guam Police and Airport Police conducting DUI checkpoints for December and January along with featuring an outreach display at the Agana Shopping Center. This Friday, DPW and its highway safety partners will bring awareness to the campaign with a wave in front of DPW from 7am to 8am.
