Officers from Sayreville will be cracking down on drunk drivers as part of the summer 2012 “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign. Beginning August 17 and running through September 3, local and state law enforcement officers will conduct sobriety checkpoints and roving patrols, looking for motorists who may be driving while intoxicated.

A concentrated national effort, the campaign helps to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving through high-visibility enforcement and public education tools, including posters, banners and mobile video display signs. Launched nationally in 1999, the program works to combat drunk driving during some of the busiest travel times of the year, including the Labor Day holiday period.

In 2010 alcohol-impaired fatalities accounted for 20 percent of New Jersey’s motor vehicle fatalities. As part of the initiative, the Division of Highway Traffic Safety provides grants to local law enforcement agencies throughout the state to run the two-week campaign.

Prescription and over the counter medications are great to have around the house when you are sick but should be disposed of when they are no longer needed. Unwanted medications in a home are an accident waiting to happen and if they are not disposed of properly can be damaging to the environment.

The Sayreville Police Department will be participating in Operation Take Back 2012. This DEA sponsored program establishes a collection point for unwanted or expired medications.

Bring your unwanted or expired medications to the Public Safety Complex on Saturday, April 28th between 10AM and 2PM and we will arrange for their proper disposal. There is no charge for this service. Help us keep Sayreville safe.
