from a staff report Published: August 28, 2016 12:00 AM

The Silver Lake and Cuyahoga Falls police departments are partnering with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to stop drunk drivers and help save lives.

The high-visibility national enforcement campaign, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, runs through Sept. 5.

"Drunk driving is a massive problem in the United States, with more than 10,000 people dying annually," said Silver Lake Police Detective Jamie Norris, adding, "If you think you see a drunk driver, call us and let us know."

Cuyahoga Falls Police Chief Jack Davis said driver safety is a top priority. "We remain committed to providing a safe environment for our commuters," Davis said. "We will have extra patrol out during this time as part of the grant we received from the Ohio Department of Public Safety to help spot and arrest impaired drivers."

Davis said Cuyahoga Falls officers "strive at all times to remove these dangerous drivers from our streets."
