Impaired Driving Enforcement In Andrew & Buchanan Counties
Captain James E. McDonald, commanding officer Troop H, St. Joseph, announces the results of an impaired driving enforcement operation conducted in Andrew and Buchanan counties.
The operation was held from 7 p.m. on June 30, 2018, to 3 a.m. on July 1, 2018. During this enforcement operation, three officers patrolled Andrew and Buchanan counties with a goal of detecting impaired drivers and other traffic violations that contribute to traffic crashes. The operation resulted in one arrest for driving while intoxicated, 11 traffic citations, and 25 warnings issued.
“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.”
The only 100 percent survivable traffic crash is the one that never happens. Make sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained in a seat belt or child restraint. Every day as we travel on Missouri’s roadways, we trust that every driver on the road is going to obey the speed limit, pay attention, and drive sober.
“Don’t Violate The Trust.”
