The Western AZ DUI Task Force will be out this Labor Day weekend. If you chose to drink, please don’t drive. Designate a sober driver. Anyone arrested for DUI drugs or DUI alcohol will go to jail and their vehicle will be impounded. The average cost of a DUI offense is close to $10,000 (fines, court fees, vehicle impound, insurance rates, etc…)
The AZ Governor’s Office of Highway Safety has joined in partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the 2019 national impaired-driving high-visibility enforcement campaign. NHTSA, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) unveiled their alcohol and drug-impaired driving messages: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and If You Feel Different, You Drive Different – Drive High, Get a DUI.
The Kingman Police Department has been awarded a grant by the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. The grant monies are to be used for overtime and employee related costs to enhance DUI & Impaired Driving Enforcement throughout the City of Kingman. The goal of the Impaired Driving Program is to reduce alcohol and drug related driving fatalities and injuries through enforcement, education, and public awareness throughout the State of Arizona. The Kingman Police Department is an active participant in the Western Arizona DUI Taskforce, which includes the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, Arizona Department of Public Safety, and other area agencies along the Colorado River. The Western Arizona DUI Taskforce will conduct DUI saturation patrols throughout the year during holidays and special events.
The penalties for impaired driving in Arizona are severe and include mandatory jail time, thousands of dollars in fines and court fees, suspension of driving license or privilege to drive, vehicle impoundment for 30 days and other expenses.
The Kingman Police Department wants to remind those that choose to drink to use a designated driver. If you suspect an impaired driver please contact law enforcement.
Drive Hammered, Get Nailed!!
