The Fort Myers Police Department is joining law enforcement throughout the nation for the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign. The impaired driving crackdown will include high-visibility enforcement through the Labor Day Holiday. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 11,000 people die on our roadways each year due to drunk driving. FMPD is reminding everyone that buzzed driving is drunk driving and planning ahead could prevent you from becoming a statistic. The enforcement is an effort to make City streets safer by cracking down on impaired driving and improve traffic safety through the following: remove impaired drivers from the roadway, reduce the likelihood impaired drivers will operate their vehicles on our roadways, heighten awareness and educate the public on the dangers of drunk driving.
