SAN ANTONIO, TX --
Digital billboards in the San Antonio area will feature the names and photos of suspected drunken drivers who are sought. Police and Bexar County authorities announced the program Monday in an effort to get the felony offenders to surrender. Use of the dozen billboards has been donated by Clear Channel Outdoor as a public service.
The billboards will feature drivers sought for charges also including intoxication assault or vehicular manslaughter.
Police Chief William McManus says the city has had nearly 3,500 DWI arrests so far this year.
The billboards project is supported by the group Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
