Don’t Be a Statistic

You see us send out regular reminders not to drink and drive, but we’d rather you read it here than hear it from an officer on the street when you are sitting in the back of a patrol car. 

If you drink and drive any time you are behind the wheel you run the risk of hearing, “I told you so.” But tonight Overland Park Officers will be out in force again working a DUI Saturation Patrol, exponentially increasing your chances of a costly DUI if you choose to imbibe and drive.

The DUI Saturation Patrol will begin at 10:00 PM, and the enforcement will not end until 2:00 AM.  As usual, the goal is to detect and deter impaired drivers.  Don’t be part of the statistics we post next week. Make responsible choices.  If you choose to drink, please don’t drive.
