Captain Inman says, 'DWI saturations are one tool that the Missouri State Highway Patrol uses in order to make our roadways a safer place for Missouri's motorists. Please be careful when behind the wheel and never drink and drive.'

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!!
