With the 4th of July holiday quickly approaching, many individuals may be planning for a long weekend. However, individuals may wish to ensure that they are conscientious about their alcohol consumption during the holiday as officers will be on the lookout for impaired drivers. If an individual is stopped and charged with DWI, he or she could face a suspended license and/or other consequences.
Missouri officers are planning to begin their counting period for the holiday weekend on July 3 at 6 p.m. until 11:59 p.m. on July 5. During this time, officers will be conducting checkpoints in order to look for impaired drivers and other traffic violations. They will also be working to ensure that drivers follow the speed limit and wear seat belts.
