Hudson County Sheriff Frank Schillari announced the arrests minutes ago, providing a breakdown of the charges:

DWI – 10

 

Drug Arrest – 6

 

Careless Driving – 31

 

Cell Phone Use – 9

 

Reckless Driving – 6

 

Seatbelt – 9

 

No Child Restraint – 6

 

Suspended Driver – 32

 

Unregistered Vehicle – 11

 

Impounded Vehicles – 30

“I am proud of our officers for their hard work and dedication to making our roadways safer,” Schillari said in  statement.

“Substance-impaired driving is more than a reckless choice by a few individuals. Each year, substance-impaired driving claims the lives of thousands on America’s streets and highways. If you choose to drive impaired, you will get caught.”

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over is a national campaign designed to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving through high-visibility enforcement and public education tools including posters, banners and mobile video display signs.

The campaign was founded in 1999 and is launched on Labor Day Weekend because of the high number of DWI Arrests and DWI related motor vehicle crashes traditional seen during that time period.

As Hudson County View previously reported, the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office participated in the end of summer crackdown between August 21 and September 7

  1. I can’t stand Schillari. Who talks like that? Everything is rehearsed. Hard work? These overweight jokers would drown in there own sweat if they did a reals day work. It’s OVERTIME and there LOVING IT! And when there done they all go to the bar and get drunk and then drive home. What a stupid moronic saying DRIVE SOBER OR GET PULLED OVER! There getting pulled over no matter what. Another inconvenience to the tax payers and legally people don’t have to submit.
    Now for the drunk drivers: may you get your zhit straight and learn your lesson (easier said then done) or you’ll be hustling with the no good devil. Been my dance partner for years.
