The Holiday Season is upon us, and it is one of the busiest travel times of the year for families. The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department will be joining other state and local law enforcement officers from across the four states area to ensure the safety of our drivers encouraging voluntary compliance with all traffic laws.
The Holiday also season brings an increase in traffic related accidents involving drunk driving and increases in dedicated traffic patrol beginning in early November and running through the New Year in an effort to discourage drunk driving and keep our citizens safe. Our primary goal is prevention and voluntary compliance, but when necessary enforcement action will be taken with ZERO TOLERANCE for DWI. We strongly encourage all members of the public, who intend to consume alcoholic beverages to arrange for a designated driver before consuming. This is a simple measure that can be taken to eliminate the risk of traffic accidents due to drunk driving.
Throughout the Thanksgiving to Christmas holiday season, many more people are on the road traveling to visit friends and family. So whether you’re traveling across the country or just across town, one of the best ways to ensure a safe arrival buckle up and above all traffic laws.
The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department wishes everyone a safe holiday season. Thank you and you can visit the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department online at http://www.txkusa.org/arkpolice
