Law Enforcement Launches DUI Holiday Campaign Across Missouri

During this busy holiday season, the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety is reminding motorists to designate a driver or call a cab and avoid driving impaired. According to the Pettis County Sheriff’s Office, law enforcement is on the lookout for impaired drivers, with targeted enforcement efforts Dec. 10-16.

“Drinking and driving is never a good combination. It’s just not worth the risk,” says Leanna Depue, executive chair of the coalition. “If you’re going to drink, plan another way home before the celebration begins, and encourage your friends and family to do the same.”

This December, safety advertising in restaurants and bars will remind patrons to “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.” You’ll find Santa’s reindeer on restroom posters, mirror clings and drink coasters with a “Don’t Drive if You’re Tipsy, Buzzed or Blitzen” message as a reminder of the importance of driving completely sober.
