TxDOT works to reduce drunk drivers with interactive experience

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

There were five crashes in Lubbock involving drunk drivers during Labor Day weekend last year.

To reduce the number of crashes over the upcoming holiday the Texas Department of Transportation demonstrated the effects of drinking and driving by playing dodgeball. 

"Unfortunately during a holiday weekend is a time when we see more crashes, fatalities, due to drunk drivers on the roadway. So, we're here today on the Texas Tech campus with our Plan While You Can interactive dodgeball game to show drivers how your reaction time is slowed when you're drinking," TxDOT Public Information Officer of Lubbock, Dianah Ascencio, said.  

The "Plan While You Can" campaign encourages drivers to plan ahead and have a sober ride home.
