On August 20 - September 6, 2010, the Kerrville Police Department joined forces with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and hundreds of other law enforcement agencies across the state in the "Labor Day Impaired Driving Mobilization Crackdown".
The crackdown served as a high-visibility enforcement effort to decrease crashes, fatalities, and injuries during the Labor Day holiday, which has become notorious when drivers make the deadly decision to drink and drive.
During the mobilization period, Kerrville police arrested 17 individuals for Driving While Intoxicated. Officers also made over 30 arrests for Public Intoxication which could have resulted in a DWI arrest if the persons had been driving.
The program proved to be a success with no reported fatalities in our community during the mobilization period. Traffic Sergeant Martin Morris said "Together, we can make Kerrville roadways safer for everyone."
