December is national impaired driving prevention awareness month

The Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office would like to acknowledge December as National Impaired Driving Prevention Awareness Month.

The holidays are always a fun time to gather with friends and family.

Although they want everyone to enjoy this special time, they ask that
you stop and think about staying safe and being responsible.

Since December has a higher accident rate on average than other months, we urge you to remember the importance of being in the proper state, when behind the wheel.

Let’s work together and stay safe this holiday season!
