The Pennington County Sheriff's Office will mount a "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign starting Friday Aug. 16 through Sept. 2.

This is part of a nationwide mobilization of law enforcement agencies through the Labor Day holiday weekend and the beginning of a new school year.

According to a release from the sheriff's office, deputies will work extra patrols to focus on

, speeding and seat belt use.

"If you drive while impaired, you could get arrested, or worse — be involved in a traffic crash that causes serious injury or death," explains Patrol Lieutenant Mark Hughes. "We hope our efforts will remind people to slow down, buckle up, designate a sober driver or use a ride service."
