"Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over."

That's the message this holiday season from the Guam Police Department's Highway Patrol Division and Department of Public Work's Office of Highway Safety.

Gov. Leon Guerrero kicked off the campaign by signing a proclamation declaring December National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month. Police Chief Steve Ignacio urges the public not to drink and drive, and if you had too much to drink, use a designated driver.

"We look forward every year to our campaign," he said. "It's a campaign that we do to keep our drivers safe, and we understand that as we start to celebrate the holiday season we expect that more people will be in a festive mood and therefore they may make the poor decision to get into a car and drive. And so it's our job as law enforcement and markers to get out there and make sure we keep our roadways safe."


GPD says it will be implementing high visibility, zero-tolerance enforcement on the roadways throughout the holiday season.
