The McAllen Police Department, in partnership with the Texas Department of Transportation and other Hidalgo County law enforcement agencies, will step up detection during a DWI Enforcement detail from Friday, August 21, 2020, until Friday, September 7, 2020 in an effort to promote safe driving with its education and enforcement efforts.
The McAllen Police Department will have officers on regular and overtime status during this period looking for drivers that are drinking alcohol and/or intoxicated while operating motor vehicles. The impaired driver detail is an effort to enforce DWI laws.
The message is simple. If you drink and drive, you subject yourself to arrest. Make sure not to drink and drive, buckle up, and obey the speed limit.
Your family and McAllen Police Officers would rather see you get home safely so, “Plan ahead if you decide to drink, find safe alternatives such as designate a driver, use a transportation app, or take a taxi cab to get home safely.” The bottom line, do not get behind the wheel if you have been drinking.
