Houston Police Department Announces Yet Another DWI Enforcement Program

The Houston Police Department has once again announced another Houston DWI Initiative aimed at reducing the number of DWI accidents and DWI fatalities in the Harris County area.  HPD was joined in this announcement by the Harris County District Attorney's Office, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.) and Crime Stoppers.

The stated goal is "to reduce drunk driving accidents and associated fatalities by using a combination of public education and heightened enforcement of drinking and driving offenses."

They are once again touting the HPD Breath Alcohol Testing (BAT) vans.  These are the mobile DWI investigation vans that HPD and other police agencies use to investigate Houston DWI cases.  They drive the vans to various locations around the city to perform breath tests, blood tests and obtain warrants for blood when a citizen refuses to give blood.

By the looks of the crowd, it doesn't seem like many people were too interested in attending the event.
