Captain Michael A. Turner, commanding officer of Troop F, Jefferson City, announces that sometime during the month of May, Troop F will conduct two DWI saturation operations.

The areas selected for enforcement are based on a high number of drinking-related crashes, high number of contacts with drivers who have been drinking, and officers’ input as to probable contact with DWI violators.

"Special enforcement operations such as these enable the Missouri State Highway Patrol to enhance our efforts in reducing the number and severity of traffic crashes in Missouri," stated Captain Turner. "Driving while impaired continues to be a major contributing factor of fatal traffic crashes in Missouri."
