In preparation for the upcoming spring break, Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman’s office has prepared a driving while intoxicated initiative with the mission of locating intoxicated and reckless drivers within the precinct. The office anticipates that this initiative will also prevent major accidents caused by excessive speed and/or intoxicated drivers.
This zero tolerance initiative will run March 6-13.
The deputies and Special Operations Unit will be out in full force to locate those who choose to drink and drive and put the public in danger. Also, Texas has a zero tolerance law for minors and alcohol; this means drivers younger than 21 years old cannot operate motor vehicles with any amount of alcohol or drugs in their systems.
- Designate a sober driver if you have consumed alcohol.
- Call a cab, Uber or Lyft for transportation needs.
- Protect others by taking their keys if they attempt to drive after consuming alcohol.
- Be responsible and make safe decisions.
