WENTZVILLE, Mo. (KSDK) - It's prom and graduation season and Wentzville police are using social media to warn teenagers about the dangers of drinking and driving.

The department announced the state-wide "Arrive Alive" campaign on Facebook Wednesday. The message is simple, drinking and driving don't mix.

Police are also visiting schools and stepping up weekend patrols.

"We try to use every outlet of media that we can so get the message out there that we would rather call your parents to come get you at the police department than come get you at the morgue," said Maj. Paul West.

Wentzville and law enforcement agencies across the state will crack down on drunk driving during a special campaign that runs May 2 through May 13.
