    Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:

    "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" goes into effect across the country from August 19 to September 5, 2016. Drunk driving, one of the deadliest and most often committed - yet preventable - of crimes, has become a serious safety issue in our country.

    In order to stop this deadly epidemic, HCSO will be joining law enforcement in every state and will be cracking down on drunk driving during the Labor Day holiday weekend, as it is one of the deadliest times of the year in terms of drunk-driving fatalities. We hope that showing zero tolerance with help save lives.

    Remember to always designate a sober, reliable driver to get you home safely.

    We encourage drivers to download the NHTSA SaferRide app, available for Android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nhtsa.SaferRide&hl=en) and Apple (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/saferride/id950774008?mt=8). SaferRide allows users to call a taxi or a predetermined friend, and identifies the user’s location so they can be picked up.
