In an attempt to ensure the safety of valley residents, McAllen P.D. along with TxDOT have implemented a safe holiday driving program.
The impaired driver mobilization grant program begins Friday, December 19th and will continue until Thursday, January first. During this period, motorists can expect to see an increased number of patrol cars on the streets in an effort to enforce safe driving practices. As part of the program, officers will be on the lookout for drivers who appear to be under the influence of alcohol. During certain days, officers will also be enforcing a no refusal policy.
