Your Partners in Policing thank citizens for calling in suspected impaired drivers throughout the month.  We encourage citizens to always call 911 immediately if you suspect someone is driving impaired.  Here are some signs of an impaired driver:

•        Driving unreasonably fast, slow or at an inconsistent speed

•        Drifting in and out of lanes

•        Tailgating and changing lanes frequently

•        Making exceptionally wide turns

•        Changing lanes or passing without sufficient clearance

•        Overshooting or stopping well before stop signs or stop lights

•        Disregarding signals and lights

•        Approaching signals or leaving intersections too quickly or slowly

•        Driving without headlights, failing to lower high beams or leaving turn signals on

•        Driving with windows open in cold or inclement weather

Here’s what you should do if you observe a potential impaired driver:

·         Call 911, state your location and provide:

o   A description of the vehicle, including the license plate number, color, make and model

o   The direction of travel for the vehicle

o   A description of the driver
