drive soberThe Siloam Spring Police Department will participate in the statewide Labor Day DWI “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” Mobilization between August 16, 2017 and September 4, 2017. The latest statistics by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveal in 2015, 10,265 people were killed nationwide in drunk-driving crashes.  The department’s goal is to keep intoxicated drivers off the roadways and to educate the public to make responsible decisions when considering the decision drive after choosing to consume alcohol. During this mobilization period the department will deploy DWI/DUI saturation patrols with a dedicated focus on finding and arresting those persons who choose to jeopardize the safety of our community by driving under the influence of any intoxicants. Siloam Springs Police Department has zero tolerance for DWI/DUI. We encourage persons enjoying the upcoming Labor Day holiday to do so responsibly and choose a designated driver.

The Siloam Springs Police Department recommends safe alternatives to drinking and driving:

  • Remember that it is never okay to drink and drive. Even if you’ve had one alcoholic beverage, designate a sober driver or plan to use public transportation to get home safely.
  • If you see a drunk driver on the road, contact the Siloam Springs Police Department, or 911.
  • Have a friend who is about to drink and drive? Take the keys away and make arrangements to get your friend home safely.
