Don’t Drive Impaired This Holiday Season

Public NoticesMost everyone is in a festive mood. Even Grinches still tend to partake in the merrymaking of large gatherings. As the holiday parties get into full swing keep in mind a plan to get home safe and sound. To help remind you to not drive impaired, the Alaska State Troopers and Alaska Wildlife Troopers, inspired by Rudolph’s red nose, will attempt to stand out by being visible out on the highways (with lights and sirens if we have to). The high visibility enforcement effort, which started Dec. 14 and lasts until the early morning hours of Jan. 2 of the new year, is to ensure the safety of Alaskans while they revel in Holiday cheer.

The Department of Public Safety realizes that alcohol is a part of many festivities this time of year. If you plan on partaking, don’t drive. (♫ You may get pulled over by a trooper ♪ driving home from a friend’s house on Christmas Eve ♫). Please have a plan in place to not drive impaired. The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Campaign is done annually around the holidays to encourage the motoring public to keep safety in mind and to prevent this time of year from turning tragic.

SCAM ALERT: Do Not Make Phone Payments for Alleged Warrants

Public Notices(STATEWIDE, Alaska) – BEWARE OF THIS REOCCURRING PHONE SCAM! An individual, usually a male, calls and identifies themselves as a trooper using various names and ranks. The caller advises people that they, or one of their family members, have active warrants and states the victim must pay their bail to the caller or face arrest and possible additional fines. The caller explains they can pay him with green dot cards or prepaid credit cards to take care of the warrants. He may also provide call back numbers which usually go directly to an answering machine if they are called. This scam has taken place in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, the Kenai Peninsula and could occur in other communities.

Be aware that the Alaska State Troopers will NOT ask for payment over the phone or offer to negotiate for reduced payment in lieu of arrest. If you are concerned that you may have a warrant for your arrest with the AST, you can look at the active warrants website: http://dps.alaska.gov/AST/warrants/. You can also look up the phone number for your local law enforcement agency to see if they can verify if a warrant is in existence and obtain information on how to correctly deal with the situation. No law enforcement agency will collect funds during a phone call or ask that payment be made using pre-paid credit cards or green dot cards that are obtained from convenient stores.
