DECEMBER 13, 2010 -- The Jackson County Sheriff's Office always places a strong emphasis on getting impaired drivers off the road, so Sheriff Mike Sharp jumped at the opportunity for his deputies to participate in the You Drink & Drive - You Lose campaign conducted December 6-12.

During the week-long enforcement effort, deputies issued a total of 120 traffic tickets, including 11 for driving while intoxicated, 27 for speeding, three for safety belt violations and 94 for other traffic violations. Furthermore, three felony arrests were, and nine non-compliance with sale of alcohol to minor violations were cited.

"When we remove a drunk driver from the roads, we're all safer," Sheriff Sharp said. "Law enforcement will continue to encourage drivers to make a simple, smart choice to drive sober."

Driving while intoxicated remains one of the top causes of fatal car crashes in Missouri. In 2009, 280 people were killed in the state due to drink driving, while 1,140 suffered serious injuries and 3,719 received minor injuries in crashes involving an impaired driver.

Enforcement efforts like this one help to take impaired drivers off the road and make travel in Missouri safer.
