Drivers are advised that during the period of August 19 through Labor Day, September 4, the Saline County Sheriff's Office will join other police agencies across Kansas in a crackdown aimed at removing impaired drivers from the roadways during You Drink. You Drive. You Lose.

It is illegal to drive while impaired, yet one person is killed in a drunk driving crash every 52 minutes in the US. Just one drink before driving can put you and others in danger, because alcohol impairs thinking, reasoning, and muscle coordination.

Driving after consuming alcohol or any other potentially dangerous substance is a choice you make.

According to Sheriff Roger Soldan, the You Drink. You Drive. You Lose. enforcement campaign is intended to remind drivers to take a moment to consider how it would be to begin every day with the memory of your decision if it resulted in injury or death. If you are driving impaired, you are not only more likely to crash, but that crash is more likely to cause serious injury or death. Think about your family, your friends, your co-workers, and your neighbors.

And, always wear your seatbelt. It's your best defense against impaired drivers. Every trip, every time.

You can always count on this agency to vigorously enforce impaired driving and other traffic laws, not just during this enforcement campaign but all through the year in order to save lives.
