4th of July Drunk Driving Crack Down

Franklin County Deputies will be cracking down on drunk driving over the 4th of July weekend. Impaired driving contributes to nearly 30 percent of all Missouri traffic fatalities. Last year, 244 people were killed and 885 seriously injured in crashes involving an impaired driver. That’s why the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office will join other Missouri law enforcement agencies to crack down on drunk driving July 3-7th. Consequences of drunk driving include jail time, loss of driver license, or being sentenced to use ignition interlocks. Insurance rates go up. Other financial hits include attorney fees, court costs, loss of time at work, and the potential loss of a job.
