TOM GREEN COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPUTIES PARTICIPATE IN IMPAIRED DRIVING MOBILITY CAMPAIGN
The Tom Green County Sheriff's Office participated in the Texas Department of Transportation's Impaired Driving Mobility Campaign for the Labor Day Weekend. The nationwide campaign is aimed at reducing traffic crashes involving impaired drivers through a combination of high visibility law enforcement and a public information and education campaign. About every twenty minutes in Texas, someone is hurt or killed in a crash involving alcohol.
During this time period, Deputies conducted 104 traffic stops. Deputies took 11 enforcement actions for speeding, 48 enforcement actions for intersection violations, and 122 enforcement actions for other traffic violations. The Deputies also arrested eight subjects for various violations, including Driving While Intoxicated, felony possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, and outstanding warrants.
