St Patricks DWI Enforcement

Local Police across the region will be out in force as part of the annual nationwide St Patricks Day Holiday Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over substance-impaired driving crackdown.  The crackdown will include high visibility enforcement throughout Jefferson County and De Soto, will run from March 16-19, 2017.

The effective nationwide substance–impaired driving crackdown will include high-visibility enforcement, high-profile events, and will be supported by national paid advertising, creating a comprehensive campaign to curb substance–impaired driving over the St. Patrick’s Day holiday.

De Soto Police said its officers will be aggressively looking for substance–impaired drivers during the crackdown and will arrest anyone caught driving impaired.

Chief Rick Draper says that “driving impaired isn’t worth the risk or the dangers, a life is too precious and we will do everything in our power to find those who choose to drive impaired on our streets”.
