In preparation for the upcoming Labor Day Weekend, Constable Mark Herman's office has prepared a Driving While Intoxicated Initiative with the mission of locating intoxicated and reckless drivers within Harris County Precinct 4.
We anticipate that this initiative will also prevent major accidents caused by excessive speed and or intoxicated drivers.
While many are celebrating the long weekend, activities such as consuming alcohol and other substances are often involved.
Constable Deputies will be out in full force to locate and arrest motorists who have made the choice to get behind the wheel while intoxicated or under any illegal substance.
Also, remember that 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.
These increased law enforcement patrols have incorporated a pro-active police approach during this busy weekend to keep our citizens and their families safe.
Please follow these simple safety tips:
- Designate a sober driver if you have consumed alcohol.
- Call a cab or Uber for transportation needs.
- Protect others by taking their keys if they attempt to drive after consuming alcohol.
- Be responsible and make safe decisions.
“If you choose to drink and drive, you choose to go to jail.” -Constable Mark Herman
We would like to remind the citizens of Precinct 4 to drink responsibly and utilize a designated driver or a transportation service to make certain you and the other citizens on the roadway remain safe.
Have a great Labor Day Weekend!
