From mid-August through Labor Day, Worthington police will be out in force as part of the annual nationwide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign to crackdown on driving while intoxicated.

The crackdown, which will include high-visibility enforcement throughout Worthington, will run from Aug. 16 through Sept. 2.

The Worthington Division of Police will join the Ohio Investigative Unit, Franklin County Safe Communities and the Ohio Traffic Safety Office to present the Alcohol Server Knowledge program (ASK). ASK is designed for liquor permit holders and their employees. Agents from the Ohio Investigative Unit will provide instruction on laws pertaining to the sale and/or consumption of alcohol and tobacco.

Agents also cover such topics as false identification, employment of minors and penalties for those found in violation.

The goal is to help prevent driving while intoxicated in addition to stopping those who have had too much to drink.

The program will be held at 6 p.m. Aug. 28 at Worthington police headquarters, 6555 Worthington-Galena Road.
