DUI Enforcement During Thanksgiving Holiday

If You Feel Different, You Drive Different – Drive High, Get a DUI!

Post Date:11/27/2019 1:44 PM

The Western AZ DUI Task Force will be out this Thanksgiving Holiday. Traditionally “Wild Turkey Wednesday” is the official kick off for the DUI enforcement season. Although hunting season for impaired drivers is everyday of the year, additional officers are assigned for enforcement and detection during times where the likelihood of impaired drivers is increased, usually around holidays.

If you chose to drink, please don't drive. Designate a sober driver. Anyone arrested for DUI drugs or DUI alcohol will go to jail and their vehicle will be impounded. The average cost of a DUI offense is close to $10,000 (fines, court fees, vehicle impound, insurance rates, etc...)

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.

The Kingman Police Department wants to remind those that choose to drink to use a designated driver, taxi or rideshare. If you suspect an impaired driver please contact law enforcement.

Drive Hammered, Get Nailed!
