Traffic Safety

This holiday season, the Gosnell Police Department reminds Citizens to Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over in Effort to End Drunk Driving.

The following information is provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.

Drunk Driving
is a very serious problem

Watch the drunk roaches get busted by the praying mantis! Drive sober or you’ll get squashed.

Save a life: buckle up

Your seat belt is crucial to surviving a crash.
Make it a habit to always buckle up every time.

  • In 2015, nearly half of passenger vehicle occupants who died in crashes were unrestrained.
  • From 2011 to 2015, seat belts saved nearly 64,000 lives – enough to fill a football stadium.


Drugged driving stats:

Take the pledge

The fight to end distracted driving starts with you. Make the commitment to drive phone-free today.

  • Protect lives by never texting or talking on the phone while driving.
  • Be a good passenger and speak out if the driver in my car is distracted.
  • Encourage my friends and family to drive phone-free.


Did you know that when you send or receive a text you take your eyes off the road for 5 seconds? At 55 mph, that’s like driving the length of an entire football field, blindfolded. As a result, thousands of people die every year in crashes related to distracted driving.
