Extra DWI Enforcement Aug. 19 – Sept. 5.

Drunk driving not only takes lives, it changes them forever. 
 
"I am very fortunate to be alive and that my three children are alive," said Bodell. "I could have easily died last November, and I could have lost my family. I'm thankful we're alive, but I'm also sad, angry and frustrated that a drunk driver changed our lives forever. Please don't make a bad decision to get behind the wheel if you've been drinking."
