Guam - Last night's traffic-related fatality of 34-year-old Justin Concepcion was the sixteenth of 2011, with five being alcohol- or drug-related. In an effort to step the brakes on the growing number this year, the Department of Public Works' Office of Highway Safety along with partners for highway safety held an impaired driving prevention exhibit at the Agana Shopping Center today.

DPW Highway Safety Coordinator Cil Javier says the event allowed residents to learn about the do's and don'ts on Guam's roadways, telling KUAM News, "We want to remind and let the public know this is a holiday season we want to make sure everyone is safe on the road and if they do plan to drink to please get a designated driver so they will be safe going home."

She adds GPD and Airport Police will be conducting random sobriety checkpoints beginning tonight through the holiday weekend as part of Drunk and Drugged Driving Month.
