Impaired Driving

The MOHS Impaired Driving (ID) program is developed and implemented based on the evaluation of alcohol and drugged driving highway safety problems within the State. The program is developed through evaluation of data, trends, population and high risk areas with high crashes, injuries and fatalities. The program is guided by data, problem identification, managed and monitored for effectiveness.

The MOHS ID program provides program management in the ID program area to coordinate statewide and local law enforcement efforts related to ID operations, national impaired driving blitz campaigns and other projects related to the ID effort.  The program oversees funding to state and local law enforcement agencies and assists in developing strategies for inter-jurisdictional enforcement efforts. The MOHS collaborates with the State’s law enforcement liaisons (LEL), TSRP, and other ID programs to increase effectiveness and efficiency of law enforcement efforts to reduce DUI. 

The MOHS provides program management for the planned MOHS alcohol/impaired driving outreach projects, surveys and the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” (DSGPO) National Mobilization. Assist with impaired driving media campaign during National DSOGPO blitz period as needed and/or requested. 

MOHS Impaired Driving Goals:

  • Reduce the number of alcohol and impaired driving fatalities, injuries and crashes.
  • Reduce the number of alcohol and impaired driving fatalities, injuries and crashes for drivers and passengers under the age of 21.
  • Increase the number of trained and certified law enforcement officers in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST), Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) and Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) training.
