Spring Impaired Driving Enforcement Campaign

PLANNING A PARTY OR SOCIAL GATHERING?

If you’re planning to celebrate March Madness, St. Patrick’s Day, or some other special event, make sure to also plan for a safe and sober ride for anyone who needs it. During this campaign, the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety will be reminding all Missourians about the importance of choosing a completely sober ride such as a rideshare, a designated driver, or a taxi. Law enforcement will be out in full force March 17 through April 23, removing impaired drivers from the roadway.

 

Even if you are walking, riding a bike, or using a scooter, having a safe way to get to your destination is imperative. And remember, alcohol isn't the only substance that can cause impairment. Here's a good rule to follow:  If you feel different, you drive different. Don’t let anyone drive impaired.
