September marked the beginning of Virginia’s 2022 Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over driving under the influence enforcement and public education campaign.

The campaign will begin over Labor Day weekend and resume throughout the winter holiday season.

Through Labor Day, 92 Virginia law agencies will conduct 383 individual saturation patrols and 31 checkpoints as part of the program.

In 2021, 26% of traffic fatalities involved drunk driving.

Since the beginning of the program in 2001, the state has seen a 40% decrease in alcohol related crashes and a 31% decrease in fatalities while injuries have nearly halved.
