The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and TXDOT want to remind you that Spring Break is a dangerous and deadly time on Texas roadways with more than 30 fatalities resulting from impaired driving in each of the past two years.  In an effort to curb this deadly trend, the Texas Department of Transportation launches its statewide “DWI Hangovers Don’t Go Away” campaign reminding young adults and college students about the dangers and long-term consequences of drinking.

“Many of these young people are under 21 and it is against the law for them to drink alcohol,” said TXDOT Executive Director Lt. Gen Joe Weber, USMC (Ret). “Every deadly crash is a tragedy, but it’s especially difficult when the promising future of a young person is suddenly cut short.  We ask parents to talk to their kids about the deadly consequences of drinking and driving. Don’t let your child be a Spring Break statistic.”

El Paso County Sheriff Richard Wiles wants to reiterate this reality by reminding College and High School students that Law Enforcement will be out looking for Drunk Drivers.  El Paso County is a no refusal county and the District Attorney’s Office will draw your blood as evidence of a suspected DWI!  Be smart and use a designated driver, NEVER get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol.

In 2014, there were 24,175 impaired-driving traffic crashes in Texas that resulted in 2,292 serious injuries and 969 deaths.  Of those crashes, 54 percent involved drivers under the influence of alcohol in the age group of 17-34.
