Make the right choice, don't drive impaired
The traditional end of the school year looks a little different this year. Most graduation celebrations are being held virtually, and proms have been postponed until safer times. But somethings that haven’t changed are the continuing dangers of driving impaired.

We’d like to congratulate all graduates for their remarkable accomplishments, particularly during a challenging school year. When you celebrate, do so responsibly. Don’t let one careless decision to drive impaired permanently ruin such a wonderful achievement.

Law enforcement will be on the lookout for underage impaired driving June 5-14 with a high-visibility enforcement campaign. Remember, Missouri has a Zero Tolerance Law if you are under 21. Drive sober, buckle up and put the phone down.
