DECATUR — Decatur police arrested 14 people for drunken driving during Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, an enforcement campaign conducted Aug. 20 to Sept. 4.

Sgt. Steve Hagemeyer said in a statement that the department joined other law enforcement agencies in ramping up patrol efforts. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over is a federally-funded campaign administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.

"The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign gives us the opportunity to help spread the message that preventing impaired driving is a matter of life or death," Hagemeyer said.
