Silex Police Cracks Down on Impaired Drivers

Silex, Missouri-Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving.

Law enforcement officers across Missouri will be cracking down on drunk driving with increased enforcement March 14-17. The Silex Police Department will be participating in this effort.

It’s never worth the risk to drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Drivers could lose their license, pay large fines, or worst of all, cause a tragic loss of life,” said Chief McDermot. “The only safe driver is one that is completely sober.”

In 2012, 217 people were killed and 815 seriously injured in accidents that involved at least one impaired driver. For more information, please visit
