Emphasis on Impaired Drivers

The Lewiston Police Department wants to make this a safe and enjoyable holiday for everyone. Lewiston Police Officers will be stepping up patrols to enforce Impaired Driving Laws.

Law Enforcement Agencies across the state are partnering with the Office of Highway Safety in an effort to reduce the number of impaired drivers, and to promote safe, sober driving through high visibility enforcement this holiday season. The Lewiston Police Department will be participating in a statewide Impaired Driver Mobilization starting December 13, 2023 and going through January 1, 2024. If you choose to drink, please be responsible and plan ahead: designate a sober driver, or take public transportation.

With an increase in traffic during this holiday season, and the potential for slick, icy roads, the Lewiston Police Department also wants to remind drivers to slow down, obey traffic signals and signs, and give yourself more distance between you and other vehicles. And as always, please remember to wear you seatbelt and have your children in approved child safety seats.

Together, we can make this a safe holiday season for all.

If you witness, or suspect an impaired driver, you are encouraged to contact the Lewiston Police Department at (208) 746-0171. You can remain anonymous.
