SLPD to Target Highway Impaired Driving during Labor Day Holiday

 

Sugar Land, TX – Sugar Land police will target drunk driving from Aug. 18 through Sept 3.

The Labor Day holiday enforcement is funded by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) through a Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) grant. The STEP grant is administered through H-GAC and provides overtime funds for enhanced DWI enforcement during holiday weekends when there has traditionally been more alcohol-related traffic incidents.

            Convicted first-time DWI offenders face penalties that include fines up to $2,000, six months in jail and loss of driver’s licenses for up to a year.

The STEP grant also provides overtime for year-round speed compliance in targeted areas, an extra resource that does not affect SLPD’s normal operations.

Speeding continues to be the number one factor contributing to accidents within Sugar Land.  The police department uses crash data, speed surveys and information supplied by residents to identify those areas where additional enforcement is needed.
