Lincoln City Police will be on the lookout for drivers impaired by alcohol or drugs Dec. 13-Jan. 2 using grant funds provided by Oregon Impact and Department of Transportation in an effort to protect the public.

“The members of the Lincoln City Police Department are committed to the safety of our citizens and visitors,” LCPD Sergeant Jeffrey G. Winn said. “and these grant funds are a valuable resource that assist us in improving the traffic safety in our community.”

The exercise is part of a national high visibility event to remove drivers under the influence from roadways in an attempt to prevent the leading cause of vehicle crash deaths and injuries. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), data shows nearly one-third of all 2018 traffic fatalities in the U.S. were alcohol related. Drunk driving is a deadly epidemic that takes the lives of over 10,000 people each year on average.

NHTSA maintains an immersive and interactive web experience called “Last Call 360” on their website where users can “enjoy a night out with friends” and “explore to see where the night takes you.”

LAST CALL 360

Police want to crack down on impaired drivers with the goal of saving lives and to educate the public that drunk driving is not worth the risk.
