Have you seen a few more officers out on traffic stops recently? That is probably because this past week the Overland Park Police Department joined various other agencies nationwide in the Labor Day “You Drink. You Drive. You Lose.” campaign.
We participate in these grant-funded campaigns regularly to combat driving under the influence violations and do seat belt enforcement. This campaign runs from Thursday, August 15th to Monday, September 2nd.
You may have seen some of the commercials that warn “they’ll see you before you see them.” Don’t take the chance on trying to find out if this is accurate. Just don’t drink and drive and remember to buckle up.
