DWI Holiday Crackdown Report

Declaring Belton Police’s participation in the nation’s annual “Holiday DWI Crackdown” substance-impaired driving campaign a major success, Belton Police reported that one substance-impaired driving arrests, 77 other significant arrests and 561 citations were made during the enforcement period, which ran from December 12, 2014 to January 1, 2015.

“I am proud of our officers for their hard work and dedication to making our area roadways safer,” said Chief of Police James Person.

“Substance-impaired driving is more than a reckless choice by a few individuals, he said. “Each year, substance-impaired driving costs the lives of thousands on America’s   highways. In 2013, 233 people died in Missouri crashes involving impaired drivers. “That worked out to about to one impaired driving fatality every 1 ½ days.”

 There were seven people killed and 69 seriously injured over the counting period for New Year’s 2013 (6:00pm, Dec31 to midnight Jan.5). Two of the fatalities and nine of the serious injuries involved a substance-impaired driver.

Belton Police joined forces with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and nearly 10,000 law enforcement agencies across the county in this year’s “Holiday DWI Crackdown” campaign.
