Ada Police prepare for "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign

ADA, OK -- Ada residents will soon be seeing more police driving around town.

Ada PD will be partnering with OHP, Lighthorse Police, ECU Police, and the Pontotoc County Sheriff's Department to participate in the national "Drive Sober or Get Pulled over" Campaign.

It starts this Friday.

Ada Police Sergeant, Jason Potter, says more officers will be staging driver's license check points in order to help crackdown on those driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

"You know college is coming back, it'll show the city and college students that there is a police presense in the town and we'll hopefully make them think twice before they get behind the wheel of a vehicle while they're intoxicated," Potter said.

Potter says more officers will be working overtime -- patroling the city of Ada daily until the campaign ends Labor Day weekend.
