Guam - The Department of Public Works' Office of Highway Safety, MCV CableCares, Nissan Motors Guam, the Guam Police Department and the Airport Police launched their new anti-drunk driving campaign "Over the Limit, Under Arrest Sun Shade" giveaway this morning. Thousands of sunshades are being given away to remind drivers not to drink and drive. 

According to Attorney General of Guam Lenny Rapadas, his office has made major headway in clearing out DWI cases mainly attributed to the establishment of the DWI Court. "I think in the next couple weeks or in a month or so we will be able to announce that the AG's Office has no more backlog as far as DUI is concerned. So everything coming in will be current cases," he said.

Today was the first event kicking-off this year's observance of Impaired Driving Awareness Month. You can pickup a free sun-shade at upcoming awareness events as well at Nissan in Upper Tumon when you test drive one of their vehicles.
