Rosendale Police Department to crack down on drunken motorists during the 'Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over' campaign
The Rosendale Police Department will join hundreds of other law enforcement agencies throughout Wisconsin in cracking down on drunken driving during the annual "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign from August 15th - September 1st.
Efforts to combat drunken driving in Wisconsin through effective enforcement and education are showing positive results. In the past 10 years, fatalities from alcohol-related crashes dropped from 348 in 2003 to 185 in 2013, which is a 47 percent reduction. Injuries from alcohol-related crashes dropped from 6,445 in 2003 to 2,660 in 2013, which is a 59 percent reduction, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
"Although we're making progress in preventing drunken driving, too many people are still being killed or injured because of the irresponsible decision to drive while impaired" says Chief Kevin Verdine. "Drunken driving is entirely preventable. You can designate a sober driver or find an alternate way home. The serious consequences of a drunken driving arrest include major embarrassment, expensive penalties, installation of an ignition interlock device, and possibly jail time. Driving drunk will be a decision you'll regret the rest of your life, if you are lucky enough to live."
To help prevent drunken driving, the Zero in Wisconsin traffic safety initiative has a free "Drive Sober" mobile app, which includes updated features to help you get home safely. The Drive Sober app can be downloaded by visiting zeroinwisconsin.gov

Provide more security for your pet. Lost pets wearing current licenses find their way home sooner than those without. Pets without a collar and tags are often assumed to be a stray and never make their way home to their family. Let people know that you care about your pet. Keep your animal's vaccinations and licenses current. Place a collar with current tags on you pet. If we can locate you, we can get your pet home to you. Licenses can be obtained from the Village Clerk. A record of vaccination is required.
