Guam - The Guam Police Department hit the streets to talk about the dangers of drunk driving. Today officers were at Jose Rios Middle School in Piti giving the students a look at where they could end up if the drink and drive.

Sergeant John Bagaforo gives the students a tour of the force's DUI Van, where drunk drivers are picked up processed and held while transported to jail. "Part of a good traffic enforcement and safety program includes community outreach where we go out to schools and the public," said Bagaforo. "And this is just part of that program for the last two days we are here at Rios Middle School talking to the 8th graders and part of that is showing them what we have the DUI van, 'the Intoxilizer.'"

The outreach is part of the 3D - Drunk & Drugged Driving - campaign sponsored National Area Traffic Safety Administration Office. Officers have been visiting schools for the last two days, with yesterday visiting JFK High School. The program is paid for in part by a federal DUI grant and administered by the Island Safety Office at the Department of Public Works.
