According to statistics, approximately 10,000 individuals are killed each year throughout the country by motorists who drive while intoxicated. These drivers are subsequently charged with various crimes, including DUI as well as involuntary manslaughter. If convicted and sentenced, many of the drivers must serve time behind bars. However, recent investigation has shown that one Missouri county is more lenient toward drunk drivers than others in the state.
Whether it is the March Madness Final Four, the World Series or the Stanley Cup finals, there are certain events that make spectators of even the most casual sports fans. Certainly, the Super Bowl is one of those events for many Missouri residents and others around the world. While watching the game is the first priority of most of the audience, others view the event as a big party and an opportunity to drink. The Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety has recently announced a campaign to keep as many drunk drivers off the road on Super Bowl Sunday as possible.
