West Columbia’s Sober or Slammer Campaign Kick-Off
Thursday, December 22, 2011

 
West Columbia, SC – The West Columbia Police Department’s Traffic Enforcement Division, as a part of South Carolina’s Sober or Slammer initiative, will be conducting numerous enforcement initiatives beginning December 21st through January 4th aimed at the apprehension of impaired drivers and the prevention of traffic injuries/fatalities as a result of impaired drivers.

The Traffic Enforcement Division will be conducting aggressive enforcement of South Carolina’s traffic laws during driving under the influence (DUI) saturation patrols along with conducting several safety checkpoints throughout the City. Although the principal focus of the saturation patrols and checkpoints will be driving under the influence; strict enforcement of any and all traffic violations will be in place. As a part of the Sober or Slammer initiative, the traffic division will continue to conduct the saturation patrols nearly nightly.

Driving under the influence, when caught, carries substantially heavy penalties, both criminal and civil, including high fines, jail time, loss of driving privileges, etc. The West Columbia Police Department’s Traffic Enforcement Division encourages you to seek other options, such as calling a taxi or having a designated driver.

The Traffic Enforcement Division encourages Citizens to become involved in the enforcement initiative by reporting impaired drivers to Law Enforcement. When reporting, try to give as much accurate information as possible such as vehicle type/color, vehicle license plate number, current location, and direction of travel, etc.

The ultimate goal of the West Columbia Police Department’s Traffic Enforcement Division is to save lives, reduce personal injury, and property damage brought about as a result of alcohol related crashes; making for a safer traveling holiday season.

If you, or someone you know, have any information regarding any crime, you are encouraged to contact Crimestoppers. You could earn a reward up to $1,000.
