Probably Ok, Isn’t Ok.

The Nebraska Department of Transportation – Highway Safety Office is teaming up with law enforcement statewide during the 2019 Labor Day Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over high-visibility enforcement campaign, which runs from August 14 through September 2, 2019. The enforcement campaign coincides with the 2019 Labor Day holiday weekend, which is one of the deadliest times of the year in terms of drunk-driving fatalities. The state and local law enforcement agencies across the Nebraska are stepping-up enforcement to put an end to drunk driving, showing zero tolerance, this is when Probably Ok, Isn’t Ok!

The cost of an alcohol-related motor vehicle crash can take a toll on our families, our resources and our community. The average cost of a non-fatal alcohol-related crash in our state (wages, loss of productivity, medical expenses, administrative costs, motor vehicle damages, and uninsured employer costs for crashes involving workers) was approximately $729,000.00 in 2017.

So you see, when a friend says, “I’m probably Ok to drive” it’s not Ok to let them drive. Their life and those on the road are at risk. Remember Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving!
