Police increase enforcement during St. Patrick's Day

From March 17 to March 20, the Lebanon Police Department in Missouri will be taking part in a national effort to curb drunk driving. The name of the campaign is Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, and there will be high profile events in Missouri and other states to highlight the dangers of drunk driving. A statement from the Lebanon Police Department said that there were 163 people killed and 575 seriously injured in drunk driving accidents throughout the state in 2015.

Proposed Missouri DWI bill under review

A Missouri lawmaker has introduced a bill that would require individuals who have been convicted of driving while under the influence to attend victim impact panels. This type of panel is made up of people who have suffered injuries or lost loved ones in drunk driving accidents, and the purpose is to drive home the potential consequences of getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol or taking drugs. The bill was introduced in December 2015, and a House committee reviewed the proposed law on Feb. 10. The representative who sponsored the bill says that he hopes for a speedy approval.

Man charged for DWI after near-accident with sheriff

A man in Missouri was charged for DWI-persistent offender after running a sheriff off the road on Jan. 6. The 28-year-old man was stopped just after 9 p.m. when the Ozark County sheriff, who was traveling with the sheriff's deputy, was heading eastbound on County Road 806. As the patrol car approached a curve in the road, they allegedly spotted the accused man coming directly toward them in the wrong lane. The sheriff was forced to veer off the side of the road in order to avoid a collision.

The financial cost of a DWI conviction in Missouri

The penalties for drunk driving can be severe in Missouri, but calculating the ultimate financial cost of a DWI conviction often involves far more than counting up the amount owed in court costs and fines. Those who suffer injury, loss or damage in drunk driving accidents may file lawsuits against the motorists responsible, but even drunk drivers who do not crash may face increased auto insurance premiums and be required to pay a number of legal and administrative fees.
