With holiday festivities rapidly approaching, the Plainfield Police participating in a national enforcement campaign to crack down on impaired and unbuckled drivers from December 16th through January 2nd.

While parties are an enjoyable part of the holiday season, we urge our community members to keep the merriment off the road. If your celebration will involve alcohol, please plan ahead for a sober ride home and remember to buckle up – it’s the best defense against an impaired driver.

Keep these tips in mind to help ensure a safe and joyful holiday season:

• Before you head to the party, designate a sober driver or plan to use public transportation or a ride sharing service to get home safely.

• If you see an impaired driver on the road, pull over and call 911.

• Have a friend who is about to drive impaired? Take their keys and help them get home safely.

• Always buckle up!
