The message regarding drinking and driving continues to be an important one for those in the criminal justice system this holiday season. District Judge William Kephart recently invited KXNT to his chambers to discuss the issue…one that still seems to be grwoing.”One out of 84 drivers was arrested here last year for driving under the influence”, according to Kephart. And according to the judge there is a very good chance the number of fatalities involving alcohol will be at an all-time high in 2011. Area law enforcement has increased the number of officers on patrol throughout the rest of the year to combat the drunk driving issue. Kephart warned that drunk-driver related fatalities will likely be at an all-time high in 2011.
