Governor Bob Riley has awarded $1.4 million to finance a statewide DUI task force, which includes nine step-vans equipped for breath tests for alcohol. Nicknamed the “bat mobiles”, the mobile DUI units are a key component of “Task Force Zero,” a state trooper campaign to stop drunk driving. They will allow for roadside testing, which will be a real boost to law enforcement.
Alabama Department of Public Safety Director Col. Chris Murphy believes this will have a positive effect on combating drinking and driving on Alabama highways.
Approximately 40% of all traffic deaths in Alabama are alcohol-related. It’s apparent that drunk drivers pose a danger to persons who travel on Alabama highways.
