The Lewis County Sheriff's Office will be participating in the Holiday/Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over DWI Enforcement Campaign this year which starts today, December 15th, and runs through January, 1, 2017.
In 2015, 322 DWI arrests were made statewide during this campaign. Also in 2015, 197 people were killed on Missouri roadways in crashes involving at least one substance-impaired driver. That works out to approximately one substance-impaired driving fatality every 1 2/4 days.
The Sheriff's Office encourages everyone to be responsible during this time of celebrations and family get-togethers by preparing ahead of time with a designated driver and by not letting your friends and family drive impaired.
We wish everyone a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year.
