(August 19, 2016)- The Cape Coral Police Department is once again participating in the annual Labor Day Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Campaign. Starting Friday, August 19th and running through midnight September 5, 2016, Cape Coral Police Officers will be focusing enforcement efforts on impaired driving. You can expect to see a noticeable increase in traffic enforcement during this 2-week period.
With all of the celebrations that will be going on around Labor Day, we at the Cape Coral Police Department encourage people to plan ahead:
- Have a designated driver.
- Don't allow friends who've been drinking to drive.
- Take a taxi, use a ride share app, or use one of the many low-cost or "free ride" programs out there.
"A DUI arrest can be incredibly costly- thousands of dollars in fines and fees, loss of driving privileges, and hours of lost time due to jail, court, probation, and community service. Not to mention, the potential to injure or kill yourself or someone else and the life-altering consequences that would have. It's just not worth it,"- Det. Sergeant Dana Coston, Cape Coral Police Department Public Affairs Officer.
