Kaufman Texas, - The season between Christmas and the New Year is one of the deadliest and most dangerous times of the year for travel. The Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office would like County residents to know we will increase our traffic patrols to keep the highways safe during the Christmas and New Year’s holiday season.
Sheriff David Byrnes would like to relay a simple message to those traveling through the County, “Don’t Drink & Drive. The Sheriff’s Office would like to encourage anyone with plans to drink alcohol to be responsible and have a designated driver that will be sober.
Sheriff Byrnes stated, “We will be strictly enforcing the law prohibiting drinking and driving as well as speeding to help Kaufman County families enjoy a safe holiday season.”
Much of the tragedy that comes from impaired driving could be prevented if drivers would follow a few simple precautions.
Spend the night where the activity is being held, not in jail.
Report impaired driver to the Sheriff’s Office by calling 911
Always buckle up.
Be responsible and do not risk lives by driving drunk.
