Belton Police to Actively Search for Drunk Drivers over Thanksgiving holiday
November 23, 2016
Due to the increase in drunk-driving related fatalities around the holidays each year, the Belton Police Department will be actively searching for and arresting drunk drivers during the Thanksgiving holiday period. 

If you’re drinking and driving, the Belton Police Department may stop you. If caught drinking and driving it could mean jail time, fines, loss of driver’s license, towing fees, and other DWI related expenses, which on average total $10,000. That doesn’t even mention the danger drunk drivers are to themselves and others.

Drive sober or catch a ride with a sober designated driver. If you plan on drinking at the holiday party or at a restaurant, hand the keys over to someone else – a sober friend, a taxi or public transportation. 

Again, Belton PD reminds drivers to drive sober, and to be alert. If you see a drunk driver on the road, call the police right away. If someone you know is about to drive after drinking, take their keys and help them get home safely.
