Holidays can be special days for fun and relaxation, as well as festivities that honor and celebrate important events and people. Each one brings its own unique joys, traditions and meanings not only to Joplin, but across Missouri and the U.S.
Unfortunately, some people use holidays as an excuse to drink and drive. In many cases, it’s because they are going from party to party or from bar to bar. In all case, it’s irresponsible behavior that can lead to drunk driving accidents, injuries and fatalities.
