News Release
Extra Patrol on Christmas and New Year's Eve - 12/25/21 and 12/31/21 - 12/22/21

Extra Patrol on Christmas and New Year’s Eve -12/25/21 and 12/31/21

 

On Christmas and New Year’s Eve, December 25th and December 31st, Molalla Police Department will be conducting additional patrols focused on detecting and arresting drivers who are under the influence of alcohol, marijuana, or any other intoxicating substance. 

In 2019 there were 10,142 deaths from drunk-driving crashes. One person every 52 minutes was killed in a drunk driving crash on our nation’s roads in 2019. Among the 10,142 alcohol-impaired-driving fatalities in 2019, 68% (6,872) were in crashes in which at least one driver had a BAC of .15 or higher. 204 children 14 and under were killed in drunk-driving crashes in 2019.

The Molalla Police Department wants to remind drivers of the dangers of impaired driving. If someone decides to drink and drive or consume marijuana or any other impairing substance, plan ahead and have a designated driver or alternate transportation. 

The goal of the Molalla Police Department is to ensure the roads in and around the City of Molalla are safe for everyone and to prevent avoidable tragedies.
