PERRY Co., Ky. (WYMT) - The Kentucky Office of Highway Safety’s "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign is underway.

As Kentucky State Police Troopers gear up for the holiday season, officials said their goal is to save lives.

“Zero fatalities is the goal,” said Kentucky Office of Highway Safety’s Executive Director Bill Bell. “We think one fatality from drunk driving is too many.”

Cabinet officials said they introduced the new tool to curb drunk driving on Thursday and it is right at your fingertips.

The “No DUI Kentucky” application is a free.

Features allow motorists to report impaired drivers, turn your camera into impairment goggles or find a cab.

“If you're out having a good time somewhere and you want to find a safe ride home, it has 30 cities in Kentucky listed that have cab companies or safe ride home,” said Bell.

Bell said users can even find out how much driving under the influence could cost you.

“If I see something and it says it's going to cost $10,000 for doing something that's pretty stupid then I’m not going to do it,” said Bell.

Bell said most importantly plan ahead and have a safe way to get home at the end of the night.

Officials said the "No DUI Kentucky" application is not only for this holiday season, but also a year-round tool to prevent drunk driving.
