BLPD Traffic Emphasis of the Month – December 2016

Bonney Lake Police Department     Bonney Lake Police Department  

TRAFFIC EMPHASIS OF THE MONTH

December, 2016

“Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”

 

During the month of December 2016, Officers will be conducting special traffic enforcement emphasis patrols looking for impaired drivers and removing them from our roadways. Impaired driving is a leading factor in Washington driving deaths. In Washington State, impaired driving is defined as: • driving while under the influence of drugs, • driving while impaired by alcohol, or • driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 percent or above.

In Pierce County and Bonney Lake we are striving to make a difference to reduce the number of tragically avoidable collisions involving impaired drivers. Extra patrols, education and changes in the law have contributed to Pierce County reducing the number of impaired driving crashes by 42%. Due to this reduction 26 more people will make it home safely for the holidays this season. Our goal is to do all we can to make sure we experience zero traffic related fatality collisions this holiday season so that everybody can make it home safely.

Bonney Lake Police Officers for the month of December, 2016 will be conducting extra impaired driving patrols and will impose a no tolerance policy on these violations in an attempt to reduce motor vehicle collisions involving impaired drivers.
