Cape Girardeau Police Cracks Down on Impaired Driving

Law enforcement officers across Missouri will be cracking down on drunk driving with increased enforcement on March 14-17.  The Cape Girardeau Police Department will be participating in this effort.

“It’s never worth the risk to drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Drivers could lose their license, pay large fines, or worst of all, cause a tragic loss of life,” said Interm Police Chief Roger Fields.  “The only safe driver is one that is completely sober.”

In 2012, 231 people were killed and 841 seriously injured on Missouri roadways in crashes involving alcohol and drugs.
