Raytown, MO Police Department Joins National Crackdown To Reduce Drunk Driving Fatalities

Raytown, MO Police Department Joins National Crackdown To Reduce Drunk Driving Fatalities

‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ Campaign Will Target Drunk Drivers

Raytown, MO – From mid-December through New Year’s Day, local police will be out in force as part of the annual nationwide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown on drunk driving. The crackdown, will include high-visibility enforcement throughout the Kansas City Metro area and will run from December 13 through January 2, 2014.

The effective nationwide drunk driving crackdown will include high-visibility enforcement, high-profile events, and will be supported by national paid advertising, creating a comprehensive campaign to curb drunk driving over the winter holidays.

Raytown Police said its Officers will be aggressively looking for drunk drivers during the crackdown and will arrest anyone caught driving drunk.

Although it is illegal in all 50 States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, to drive drunk (having a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher), far too many people across the nation get behind the wheel after consuming too much alcohol. The latest statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration underscore the serious nature of the nation’s continuing drunk driving epidemic.

Every year, about one third of all motor vehicle traffic deaths involve one or more impaired drivers or motorcycle operators according to National Highway Traffic Safety. In 2012, 230 people died in Missouri crashes involving impaired drivers. That works out to approximately one impaired driving fatality every 1 ½ days.”
