A Message from Colonel Jeffery Glover
New data suggest that the percentage of crashes involving drivers with blood alcohol content (BAC) over the legal limit has jumped from 19 percent to 26 percent during COVID.
Post COVID, the increased trend of vehicle collisions and impaired driving has continued. We must continue a vigilant path to educate and enforce drunk and drugged driving laws, as many lives depend on it. Law enforcement officers are tasked with saving lives, and we must continue the fight to ensure enforcement and accountability are present to address this issue.
