Starting on June 10th, 2011 the law enforcement officers in Houston, Texas are starting to get more serious about drunk driving offenses in the area. Their efforts will last through the July 4th holiday weekend and perhaps beyond. Fort Bend, Harris, Montgomery counties and more will be upping their presence on the road in an attempt to catch people who decided to risk drinking and driving.
Harris County in Texas is the number one area for alcohol-related fatalities in the United States. 50% of the fatal accidents in the area are because of drunk driving. Houston Police Captain Carl Driskell says:
“We like to be number one in a lot of things but we don’t want to be number one in this category. DWI is 100 percent preventable, no excuses. If you know you’re going to drink, get a designated driver.”
