Though Thanksgiving has come and gone, the holiday season is far from over. Many individuals will continue to travel to visit relatives and other loved ones throughout the month and end of the year for celebrations. As many of these celebrations are likely to have alcoholic beverages available for adult consumers, it is important to remember that drinking and driving could have serious consequences, such as a suspended license, if an individual draws the attention of authorities.
Because holiday time typically results in an increase in traffic, Missouri authorities are going to be on the lookout for drivers who may be impaired. An increase in enforcement of DWI laws is slated to begin mid-December and carrying on through the first few days of the new year, covering Christmas and New Year holidays. The efforts to reduce the number of impaired drivers during this time will be carried out across the state.
