JEWETT – The Jewett police department is participating in the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” program, as part of the National Enforcement Mobilizations 2012, now through Sept. 3, 2012. Jewett Police Chief Ron Carter said units would be on extra traffic patrol for this event.

“My office will be on extra patrol and will not tolerate any drinking and driving. I have been on the force for over 12 years and have seen many alcohol related incidences and we would like to make a dent in these violations,” said Chief Carter.

He would also like to urge anyone observing an individual drinking and driving to call the local sheriff or call 1-800-GRABDUI.

Please help our local law enforcements create a safer motoring environment by buckling up, and if you plan to drive, DON’T DRINK.
