Police looking for impaired drivers in 4/20 enforcement effort

Publish Date 04/19/2019

The Kansas City Missouri Police Department is joining law enforcement agencies across Missouri and the Midwest on a 4/20 Drug-Impaired Driving Enforcement Campaign today and tomorrow, April 19-20. 

Marijuana, alcohol, prescription drugs and more can all impair driving. If you feel different, you drive different. In 2018, 78 people were killed in Missouri, and 142 were seriously injured in crashes that involved at least one drug-impaired driver.

In cannabis culture, 4/20 marks a time of celebration and marijuana use. So extra officers will be out on the roads ensuring everyone is driving safely. 

This enforcement campaign is made possible through a grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
