Sheriff’s Department Wraps Up March Enforcement Campaign

The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department has wrapped up yet another successful dangerous and impaired driving enforcement campaign in March with impressive numbers.

A release from the department says during the 24-day enforcement blitz, 10 tickets were written, 57 warnings with 40 for speeding, and 4 arrests were made withing the county’s borders.

Lt. Tim Lampert with the Sheriff’s Department points to the fact that dangerous and impaired driving kills and says we all play a part in keeping Indiana’s roadways safe.

He notes that these types of campaigns ensure that each and every driver and passenger understands their roles and the importance of staying vigilant behind the wheel.

Lampert says even a less dangerous or impaired driver off the road is a success in which we can all share.

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says in 2015 an average if one alcohol related driving fatality took place every 53 minutes.

Annually, more than 10,000 people die on U.S. roadways due to intoxicated driving.

The increased enforcement during March is a statewide effort supported by federal highway safety funding. The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute distributes funding to more than 250 participating Indiana law enforcement agencies.
