Polished Edge: ‘Drink. Drive. Go to Jail.’ campaign coming to SA
AUSTIN -- As part of a national effort to save lives and crack down on impaired driving, the Texas Department of Transportation will bring its “Drink. Drive. Go to Jail.” campaign to the University of Texas at San Antonio downtown campus on Thursday, Aug. 29, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and 5-7:30 p.m. on the main campus.
The campaign will include a simulated jail cell that allows visitors a harsh glimpse into the consequences of drunk driving. The cell will allow participants to experience jail, receive a fake mug shot, and only be released by a “warden” after completing a DWI quiz.
Along with TxDOT’s campaign, law enforcement will work thousands of overtime hours as part of the national crackdown effort.
For more information, call 512-463-8700 or email MediaRelations@txdot.gov.
