Lawrence County Sheriff's Office Cracking Down on Impaired Drivers Dec. 6-12
The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office will be participating in the You Drink & Drive. You Lose. campaign to stop people from driving impaired this Holiday season. Enforcement efforts will be increased Dec. 6-12 and will focus on reducing deaths and serious injuries caused by impaired drivers.
"Losing a loved one during the Holiday season is a tragedy no one should have to endure," stated Sheriff DeLay. "Impaired driving is a preventable crime, and we intend to crack down so drivers feel secure when traveling Missouri's roadways."
