**Kingman Police Conducting Labor Day Holiday DUI Enforcement**

 The Kingman Police Department, in conjunction with the Western AZ DUI Task Force, will be out providing extra patrol this Labor Day holiday weekend looking for impaired drivers. If you choose to drink, please don’t drive. You are being patriotic if you designate a sober driver!!

Arizona has severe penalties for impaired drivers which is recognized as a violent crime. 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…).  These economic costs don’t include the personal costs for the potential loss of life or your job.

The Kingman Police Department wants you to enjoy this holiday weekend as we mark the end of summer and to celebrate and pay tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers to make our country prosperous and strong.  Plan ahead if you are going to be drinking and designate a sober driver, taxi, or rideshare.

The Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety provided the Kingman Police Department with grant funding for overtime to have additional officers assigned for enforcement and detection during times where the likelihood of impaired drivers is increased, usually around holidays.

Drive Hammered, Get Nailed!
