In Texas, there is a traffic crash about every 20 minutes involving a driver under the influence of alcohol. The Texas Department of Transportation hopes to lower this statistic with the launch of its annual Labor Day “Drink. Drive. Go to Jail” campaign.
Drivers and motorcyclists are reminded to avoid drinking and driving or else face severe consequences. For more details about the campaign, see the August 21 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
