The McAllen Police Department, in partnership with the Texas Department of Transportation and other Hidalgo County law enforcement agencies, will be conducting an Impaired Driver Enforcement detail from Thursday, December 13, 2018 until Monday, December 31, 2018 with a goal to promote safe driving with its education and enforcement efforts.
The Goal: A Safe Holiday Season for All. To accomplish such, local law enforcement agencies have planned, coordinated and will implement law enforcement patrols in an effort to make a regional impact against driving under the influence.
McAllen Police Department participates in the Comprehensive Selective Traffic Enforcement Grant, which is used in enforcing driving while intoxicated laws during other periods of the year.
Holiday periods continue to be one of the most dangerous times for Texas motorists, and our community. Many fatalities during these holidays occur due to intoxicated drivers. Make sure not to drink and drive, watch your speed and always buckle up.
Your family and McAllen Police Officers would rather see you get home safely so, “Plan ahead if you decide to drink, then designate a driver or take a taxi cab to get home safely.” The bottom line, do not get behind the wheel if you have been drinking.
