Red Bank Receives Grant to Crack Down on Drunk Driving

The Red Bank Police Department has received a $6,000 grant for the state’s annual campaign “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” from the Division of Highway Traffic Safety.

The program began last week and lasts until Friday, Jan. 1.

With the holiday season here, there is a propensity for increased drunk driving incidents. This grant will allow the Red Bank police to increase their presence and concentrate their patrols to enforce sober driving.

A few other Monmouth County towns received this grant as well, including Allentown, Brielle and Englishtown.
