Results Of DWI Saturation In Buchanan County
Captain James E. McDonald, commanding officer of Troop H, St. Joseph, announces the results of a DWI saturation conducted in Buchanan County.
The saturation was held from 7 p.m. on December 16, to 3 a.m. on December 17, 2017. During this enforcement operation, four officers patrolled Buchanan County with a goal of detecting impaired drivers and other traffic violations that contribute to traffic crashes. As a result, there was one arrest for driving while intoxicated, two drug arrests, one warrant arrest, 19 traffic citations issued, and 64 warnings given.
“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."
