Lawrence County Sheriff's Office cracks down on Impaired Drivers

Lawrence County, MO - Missouri roads are safer, thanks to law enforcement cracking down on impaired drivers and working to make sure motorists think twice about traffic safety.

The Lawrence County participated in the You Drink & Drive.  You Lose. crackdown conducted May 5-9.  During the enforcement effort, officers issued a total of 35 summons/warnings including:  1 driving while intoxicated; 18 speeding; 1 safety belt; and 12 other traffic violations.  One felony drug arrest was also made as a result of the crackdown.

"When we remove a drunk driver from the roads, we're all safer," stated Sheriff Brad DeLay.  "Law enforcement will continue to encourage drivers to make a simple, smart choice to drive sober."

Driving while intoxicated remains one of the top causes of fatal car crashes in Missouri.  In 2008, 262 people were killed, 1,113 seriously injured and 3,398 received minor injuries in crashes involving an impaired driver.
