TxDOT Warns of Alcohol-Related Crashes, Spring Break Enforcement Period Begins Friday

Facebook

Spring is the most dangerous season on Texas roadways for alcohol-related traffic crashes.

TxDOT is reminding motorists to line up a Person Appointed to Stay Sober, or P.A.S.S.

The period of March 1st through May 31st in 2011 accounted for 26 percent of all alcohol-related crashes in Texas, according to TxDOT, more than any other season.

Weekends continue to claim many lives as well, with 58 percent of all alcohol-related crashes occurring on a weekend in 2011.

State law makes it illegal for someone with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 percent or higher to drive a vehicle.

TxDOT will travel to different entertainment districts and college campuses throughout the state this month to remind motorists that “buzzed driving is drunk driving,” and to always line up a P.A.S.S. TxDOT also encourages people to visit www.soberrides.org to help people find safe rides home.

Texas troopers will begin their annual spring break patrols this Friday. They made more than 1,000 arrests for Driving While Intoxicated during the spring break enforcement period in 2012.
