Officers cracking down on DWI

The Missouri State Highway Patrol announces that sometime during the month of July 2013, Troop B officers will conduct a DWI enforcement saturation in Adair County. During the month of August 2013, DWI enforcement saturations will be conducted in Macon, Marion, and Ralls counties. During these enforcement operations, troopers will focus their attention on selected highways with a goal of detecting intoxicated drivers, hazardous moving violations, speed, and other traffic violations that cause traffic crashes.

"The Patrol is committed to removing intoxicated drivers from our highways," stated Captain Wilt. "I would like to urge all motorists to choose a sober designated driver if drinking alcohol is a part of your plans."

The Patrol encourages motorists and watercraft operators to protect themselves by making sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained in a seat belt or child restraint and everyone in the vessel is wearing an approved life jacket. Click It 4 Life and Wear It.
