Austin Police Department And Austin Club Combine Forces To Reduce DWIs

The Austin Police Department Central West Area Command (CWAC) District Representative Unit has been working with Austin's Dallas Night Club since the first of the year to help reduce DWI arrests in Austin. To reduce DWIs in the Burnet Road area, the CWAC District Representative Unit have been working with TABC, Yellow Checker Cab, Brown Distributing and Mr. Bill Thompson of the Dallas Night Club to develop solutions to reduce DWIs and DWI arrests.

On Wednesday night Dallas Night Club will launch the "Sound Attitude" program to recognize and reward the designated driver. Designated drivers who identify themselves at the door will be given a good sport wristband and a free soft drink or non-alcoholic O'Doul's. Designated drivers will also have the opportunity to receive prizes through a drawing. In addition, Yellow Checker Cab will have cabs readily available at cab stands to drive individuals home that do not have a designated driver.

The "Sound Attitude" program will kick-off on Wednesday, April 13th, from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the Dallas Night Club, 7113. Burnet Road. KASE 101 and other business community members will also be at the kick-off.

APD hopes this program will serve as a model for other nightclubs in and bars in the Austin area.
