DWI Enforcement increases during Spring Break
During Spring Break, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, along with other area law enforcement agencies, will be deploying additional resources to actively look for intoxicated drivers. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office obtained a Texas Department of Transportation grant, which will assist in deploying additional law enforcement resources to target those who drive intoxicated. The District Attorney’s Office is assisting in these efforts, as there are several No Refusal Operations planned during the Spring Break holiday. The District Attorney’s Office will be providing nurses, prosecutors, and judges on stand by for the enforcement operation.
“The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office wants our citizens and guest to have a safe spring break, so please plan and ahead and think before drinking and driving. Get a designated driver, use a car share service, and be responsible.”
Constable Chris Jones and the Precinct 5 Constables Office also urges residents to plan for a ride as well. If you plan to consume alcohol or other substances that could impair you, choose your ride ahead of time.
“Watch out for your friends, co-workers, neighbors and family” said Constable Jones. “When you see someone has had too much, it’s time to intervene and they will thank you later.”
Be prepared this Spring Break!
- Plan ahead and choose your ride
- Stay off the road if possible during peak DUI crash times
- Watch out for your friends, co-workers, neighbors and family
- Wear your seatbelt
- Call 911 and report any suspected drunk or impaired drivers
The Montgomery County Precinct 5 Constable’s Office is ramping up our DWI enforcement over Spring Break and will help you choose your ride if you make the wrong decision.
Possible DWI consequences can include: Fines, Jail Time, Loss of Driver’s License, Vehicle Seizure and Injury or Death to One’s Self or Others.
Please be aware and don’t hesitate to report any impaired drivers by calling 911. Be prepared to give a location of the driver, a vehicle description, a license plate number and a description of the dangerous behavior.
