Troopers, deputies crack down on driving violators

The Mechanicsville Local  reports that the Hanover County Sheriff’s Office is cracking down on drunk drivers this holiday with random, unannounced sobriety checkpoints.

There are more police officers on the streets, including some volunteer law enforcement officers.  Also there are many overtime patrols and 75% of State Troopers are working during this period.

Also there are specially trained mountain bike patrols in parking lots and retail areas.  The bikes allow them to move quickly in heavy traffic yet still be accessible by citizens.

State Police recommend you be aware of the three Ds while driving:

1. Distracted driving.  Try not to use your cell hone, PDA or ipod while driving.

2. Drowsy driving.  Make sure you get enough rest to avoid any unfortunate accidents.

3. Drunk driving.  Make sure you plan ahead and have a sober designated driver before you go out drinking.  A cab costs a lot less than a DUI fine.
