  • (1888PressRelease) November 23, 2010 - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania - The service was tested in Northeastern Pennsylvania for over three months before being roll out on a state-wide basis. The service immediately attracted thousands of subscribers as well as the support of District Attorneys, Police and Police Chiefs. The Luzerne County Sobriety Coordinator stated that this service meetings the goals of the state's D.U.I. Program which is deterring drinking and driving thru "D.U.I. Awareness". "Win / Win Program" benefits police, citizens and social drinkers. With the "Win / Win" Program, people will make better decisions when deciding to drink and drive in Pennsylvania.

    "The single most important part the service is the fact that subscribers receive "TEXT MESSAGES NOTIFICATIONS 12-HOURS in ADVANCE*" of police sobriety checkpoints in their area" says Jill Perry, company spokesperson.

    The "12-HOURS*" allows people to make sound decisions regarding their personal lives and social drinking, reducing the number of D.U.I. arrests that officers must make. Because text alerts arrive 12* hours prior to the setup of the checkpoint, subscribers can easily find a designated driver, make other plans for the evening or choose not to drink at all. This product is a "win/win" for both drivers and police.

    With the "Win / Win Program", Police departments benefit from the increased public awareness, which is what these checkpoints are designed to do in the first place. It can also help understaffed police stations increase public D.U.I. awareness and create safer road conditions for residents. As such, this product helps police achieve their goal of awareness. Residents enjoy safer driving conditions and fewer problems if they choose to have an active social life.

    Police departments can actually increase public awareness by up to 100 times what is possible through traditional methods with the "Win / Win Program". For instance, if a checkpoint stopped 100 vehicles, only those drivers and passengers within the vehicle would be educated.

    However, a text notification can alert 10,000 people in a given area. This number is also increased because each of those receiving the notification has 12* hours to tell someone else. Therefore, a conservative estimate would be 20,000 residents alerted to the checkpoint prior to its set-up.

    Obviously, this system provides powerful benefits for police departments, and can help ensure that residents are safe and able to make the best possible decision for their lives.

    For a limited time subscribers can sign up for a 14-Day Trial for $1.00 (annual subscription is $23.88 which averages less than $2.00 a month) to receive the latest alerts in their area to receive the latest alerts in their area.
