EMPHASIS: Results Of DWI Saturation Conducted In Livingston County


Captain James E. McDonald, commanding officer Troop H, St. Joseph, announces the results of a DWI (driving while intoxicated) saturation conducted in Livingston County. The saturation was held from 7:00 p.m. on August 22, 2014, to 3:00 a.m. on August 23, 2014. During this enforcement operation, five officers patrolled specific areas with a goal of detecting impaired drivers and other traffic violations that contribute to traffic crashes. As a result of the operation, there was one arrest for driving while intoxicated, one arrest for minor in possession, 23 traffic citations issued, and 39 warnings.

“Impaired driving poses a significant threat to motorists on Missouri’s roadways,” stated Captain McDonald. “One of the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s highest priorities is removing the impaired driver from our roadways. If drinking is part of your plans, choose a sober designated driver.”

In support of "The Drive To ZERO Highway Deaths," the Patrol encourages motorists to protect themselves and their passengers by making sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained in a seat belt or child restraint. Watercraft operators should ensure that everyone in the vessel is wearing an approved life jacket. Click It 4 Life And Wear It!!
