"Special enforcement operations such as these enable the Missouri State Highway Patrol to enhance our efforts in removing impaired drivers from our highways," Wilt said.  "Driving while impaired continues to be a major contributing factor of fatal traffic crashes in Missouri."

Wilt urges all citizens to help law enforcement efforts to apprehend impaired drivers.  If you suspect a motorist of driving while impaired or observe a vehicle being driven in an erratic manner, contact the nearest law enforcement agency.  The Highway Patrol toll-free numbers for reporting emergencies are 1-800-525-5555 or cellular *55.
