“It’s a reminder that it’s okay to celebrate, but do it responsibility. Every single DUI crash, every single DUI arrest, every single DUI fatality is 100 percent preventable,” said Missy Sweitzer, York & Adams County Coordinator at the Center for Traffic Safety.

The Center for Traffic Safety is increasing DUI patrols and sobriety checkpoints from now through July 4.
