“This is deadly, irresponsible behavior, and we will be out in full force to put a stop to it wherever we can. The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign means zero tolerance for drunk driving. There are plenty of safe ways for you to get home after drinking alcohol. We will accept no excuses.”
In Wyoming, it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher. If you kill someone while under the influence, you could be charged with aggravated vehicular homicide. Not only do you put your life and the lives of others at risk, but a DUI arrest means going to jail, losing your license, and paying steep financial costs.
“This Fourth of July, don’t risk losing your life or your independence by drinking and driving. Help make everyone’s holiday safer by driving sober,” said Noel Cooper, Executive Director with Injury Prevention Resources “Remember,” he warned, “there’s no excuse—Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.”
