Branson Police to Participate in DWI Enforcement Campaign Starting This Weekend

The Branson Police Department will participate in the nationwide DWI campaign, “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,” starting December 20, 2019, to crack down on substance-impaired driving. This crackdown will include high-visibility enforcement throughout the City of Branson and will run until January 1, 2020.

During this campaign, Branson Police officers will be aggressively looking for substance-impaired drivers and will arrest anyone caught driving impaired. 

“Research has shown that high-visibility enforcement like the 'Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over' campaign reduces substance-impaired driving fatalities by as much as 20 percent.  By joining this nationwide effort, we will make Branson’s roadways safer for everyone throughout the Holidays,” said Branson Chief of Police, Jeff Matthews. 

Substance–impaired drivers face jail time, loss of their driver licenses, and steep financial consequences such as higher insurance rates, attorney fees, court costs, lost time at work, and the potential loss of a job. When family, friends, and co-workers find out, violators also often face tremendous personal embarrassment.

“If you have any doubt about your sobriety, do not get behind the wheel.  If you do choose to drive impaired, you will be arrested.  No warnings. No excuses. Don’t take the chance because we will be out in force and we will be watching,” said Chief Matthews.
