Governor’s Office of Highway Safety Grant Awarded to Kingman PD for DUI & Impaired Driving Enforcement
The Kingman Police Department has been awarded a $20,000 by the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. The grant monies are to be used for overtime and employee related costs to enhance DUI & Impaired Driving Enforcement throughout the City of Kingman from October 1, 2018 – September 30, 2019. The goal of the Impaired Driving Program is to reduce alcohol and drug related driving fatalities and injuries through enforcement, education, and public awareness throughout the State of Arizona. The Kingman Police Department is an active participant in the Western Arizona DUI Taskforce, which includes the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, Arizona Department of Public Safety, and other area agencies along the Colorado River. The Western Arizona DUI Taskforce will conduct DUI saturation patrols throughout the year during holidays and special events.
This week kicks off the holiday DUI enforcement season, beginning with what is commonly referred to as “Wild Turkey Wednesday” and moving into the Thanksgiving weekend. The Kingman Police Department, along with members of the Western Arizona DUI Taskforce, will be aggressive in enforcement every weekend from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day looking for impaired drivers.
The penalties for impaired driving in Arizona are severe and include mandatory jail time, thousands of dollars in fines and court fees, suspension of driving license or privilege to drive, vehicle impoundment for 30 days, and other expenses. There are consequences to human life from those that drive impaired. According to 2017 statistics reported by the Arizona Department of Transportation, 32% of all fatalities in Arizona were alcohol related. Statewide, there were 320 people killed and 3,095 people injured. In Mohave County alone, there were 12 fatal crashes resulting in 13 killed and 137 people injured in the reported 184 alcohol related crashes.
The Kingman Police Department wants to remind those that choose to drink to use a designated driver. If you suspect an impaired driver please contact your local law enforcement agency.
