Impaired Driving Ceremony Planned for Missouri Capitol
JEFFERSON CITY (AP) -- A memorial service at the Missouri Capitol will honor people who have been affected by vehicle accidents involving impaired drivers.
The state Department of Transportation says that during the past three years, 800 Missourians have been killed and more than 3,000 people have been seriously injured in accidents involving impaired drivers.
During the ceremony Tuesday, officials also plan to unveil a new logo for a national campaign to encourage sober driving. The name for the campaign is "drive sober or get pulled over."
Speakers at the ceremony are to include the director for the Transportation Department and the superintendent for the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
