Another New Year's Eve of parties and drinking is upon us Tuesday night. The holiday concludes the Ohio State Highway Patrol's "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" enforcement campaign. Sgt. Brad Bishop, Assistant Ashland Post Commander, says the patrol will use grant money to pay overtime for troopers to watch for crash-causing driving behaviors such as driving too fast or slowly and weaving. New Year's Eve brings a spike in drunk driving arrests and accidents, although many people know better than to drive after drinking. Bishop says they've learned to designate a sober driver, call a cab, or make other arrangements. Seven people died in crashes last New Year's Eve in Ohio, so the patrol hopes to reduce the potential for traffic tragedies as 2013 comes to a close.
