GREENE COUNTY, Mo.-- The Greene County Sheriff’s Office will conduct a DWI Check Point on April 19 to remind impaired drivers of the consequences of drunk driving.

The Greene County Sheriff’s Department says that consequences of buzzed driving include: jail time, loss of their driver’s licenses, or being sentenced to use ignition interlock. Insurance rates go up. Other financial hits include attorney fee, court cost, lost time at work and the potential loss of job or job prospects.

“It’s never worth the risk to drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Drivers could lose their license, pay large fines, or worst of all, cause a tragic loss of life,” said Sheriff Jim Arnott. “The only safe driver is one that is completely sober.”
