Monroe police to focus on drunk driving
Placeholder Image
MONROE - More police will be patrolling Monroe streets in the coming weeks as part of a national effort to crack down on drunk driving. The Monroe Police Department announced Tuesday it is participating in the annual "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign, starting Friday and ending Sept. 7. Every three hours, on average, someone is killed or injured in an alcohol-related crash in Wisconsin - despite drunk driving being "100 percent perventable," Chief Fred Kelley said in a news release.
