Recently, Dallas County DWI Task Force created a new website, in order to reach out to the public about drunk driving. The Task Force is a group of several local organizations and government agencies that lead initiatives to prevent incidences of drunk driving.
The group’s new website encourages Dallas citizens to reach out and share their experiences with drunk driving. Additionally, the website promotes becoming a members of the Task Force and volunteering with them. Dallas residents regularly help the Task Force educate the community about the hazards of drunk driving. County Commissioner Elba Garcia, chairperson of the DWI Task Force, also includes a message to citizens in the Dallas area, asking for their input on ways to improve the area’s DWI prevention education.

In Insurance.com’s annual evaluation of the top cities in America with the most DWIs per capita, Fort Worth was listed at number eight–a significant jump from 2010, when it was ranked 14th. Austin, Dallas, and Houston appear in the 11th, 12th, and 13th spot.
San Diego, Los Angeles, and Indianapolis ranked as the top three cities with the most reported alcohol-related violations per capita. The report also explained that the number of DWIs may not necessarily correspond to instances of drinking and driving. A lack of public transportation or a particularly effective police department could factor into the number of DWIs an area sees.
Unfortunately, Texas consistently ranks poorly in reports on drinking and driving. DWI policies that exist in several other states struggle in Texas legislature. If you or someone you know has been injured by a drunk driver, contact W. T. Johnson today.
