Beginning March 4, 2016 through March 21, 2016, the Travis County Sheriff’s Office will participate in the Impaired Driving Mobilization (IDM) grant which targets drivers who are driving under the influence of alcohol. This grant is offered by the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) and will allow the Sheriff’s Office to put additional deputies on the roadway, in order to increase law enforcement presence and seek out impaired drivers.
Alcohol related accidents and deaths are preventable. We are asking for the public to report impaired drivers to 911. Together, we can reduce impaired drivers on the roadways and save lives.
Don’t be a statistic! Remember, “buzzed driving” is drunk driving. If you drink, don’t drive.
