“The ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ campaign means zero tolerance for drunk driving—no excuses.”
Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
Over the 4th of July and the coming weeks, Mammoth Cave’s law enforcement rangers will be out in full force cracking down on drunk drivers. Expect to see law enforcement rangers at sobriety checkpoints throughout the summer along the Mammoth Cave Parkway, Green River Ferry Road, Brownsville Road, and on roving traffic patrols.
“The consequences of drunk driving are serious,” added Chief Peppers. “Not only could you put your life and the lives of others at risk, but a DUI arrest means a loss of freedom and money, including going to jail, losing your license, and paying steep financial expenses. A DUI arrest in Mammoth Cave National Park is a federal offense, punishable by up to six months imprisonment and/or a $5,000 fine.”
Chief Peppers also requests that if you suspect a driver to be operating their vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs in the park, please contact Mammoth Cave rangers at 270-597-2729.
