The consequences of drinking and driving can be costly no matter how many drinks you have consumed.
The task of stopping impaired drivers is a joint effort of law enforcement agencies and the public. By never allowing an impaired driver to get behind the wheel of a vehicle and reporting dangerous drivers to law enforcement, the public can play an important role in the reduction of crashes caused by impaired drivers.
Making poor decisions in a vehicle such as driving impaired, driving while distracted or not wearing a seat belt leads to serious injuries and deaths every day across the state.
Making the responsible decision can mean the difference between life and death.
