SILVER LAKE — The Silver Lake Police Department will once again be participating in the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement campaign. This year it runs from Aug. 16 through Sept. 2.

"Unfortunately, alcohol and drug related crashes happen far too often, many of them fatal," said Police Lt. Dave Childers. "Being a part of something that can help raise awareness and deter impaired driving is an obvious choice for our department, and many others."

The police department is also involved with the Summit County OVI Task Force.

"As a participant of the Task Force, we are allotted grant money to have extra officers on the roads to focus on OVI enforcement, not only during this enforcement period but all year long," Childers said.
