[ARCHIVED] Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

Battle Ground resident Jack Fletcher survived a devastating crash when an impaired driver struck Jack’s car head-on. In this video Jack, his dad, and Battle Ground Police Department Sgt Tim Wilson recount the day of the crash and the tragic impacts of impaired driving. 

Last year in WA State alone, impaired drivers were involved in crashes that resulted in 277 deaths and another 371 serious injuries.  That is why BGPD and other law enforcement agencies throughout Clark County are joining a statewide effort through extra DUI patrols August 18 - September 4 to look for drunk or drugged drivers.  

The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign is in partnership with Target Zero and is designed to encourage all drivers to make the right choice to drive sober, designate a sober, drug-free driver, take a cab, catch a ride share, Uber, Lyft or walk with a friend.
