WV State Police Increase Holiday Enforcement Efforts

West Virginia is sixth in the nation in DUI-related deaths. State Police started their special holiday enforcement efforts the first weekend in December. This year troopers are targeting drunk and impaired drivers in their increased holiday enforcement. A government grant is paying for overtime for the increased enforcement efforts. Police will be enforcing all traffic and road regulations but especially drunk driving. Sergeant Michael Baylous of the West Virginia State Police says the agency has zero tolerance,  and if you are caught driving under the influence you will pay the penalty.

Baylous says the crackdown also applies to drivers impaired by things like illegal drugs. He adds the special enforcement will last into January, but points out troopers will still target impaired drivers all year long.
