Valentine’s Day Traffic Enforcement Campaign
For Immediate Release 02.04.2020

There’s something far more dangerous on Valentine’s Day than forgetting the flowers, chocolates, or dinner reservations….it’s drinking and driving. If your plans with the one you love includes a night out and drinking, plan ahead for a sober ride, because Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving.

Wherever you live, you’ve got options: ride-sharing services, taxis and public transportation. Think of it as part of the fun of your Valentine’s date; who wouldn’t want a chauffeured ride to take them around town on their special night out?

If you need more convincing, think of the person you most want to spend time with on Valentine’s Day. Then imagine where you’d be without them because you or someone else made the dangerous and selfish choice to get behind the wheel after drinking. That’s why we remind everyone that Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving. Love means never having to say you’re sorry you took a life while driving drunk.

A cocktail or wine with a fancy dinner should be a small part of a beautiful, lasting memory, not the prelude to a deadly, drunk driving crash. This Valentine’s Day and every day after, share the love by always driving sober. That’s a Valentine you can share with everyone. #CarlisleIowaPD
