A grant given by TxDot to the city of Amarillo was used to combat impaired driving in the city over the holiday season.

From December 21st through New Year’s Eve, Amarillo police utilized the grant to keep officers on the streets looking for drunk and impaired drivers.  Police made eight arrests for DUI during the period.  APD also nabbed two for marijuana and one for meth.

2012 saw a rise in Amarillo of traffic fatalities and the grant was used to help lower that total for 2013.

TxDot’s newest slogan is P.A.S.S., Person’s Appointed to Stay Sober.
