DUI victims to be honored at upcoming checkpoints

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City police are launching a new campaign to remember the victims of drunk driving.

The KCPD will dedicate upcoming sobriety checkpoints to people who were killed by drunk drivers. Each checkpoint will have signs with the victims' picture and the date they were killed.

The first two victims to be honored will be Diana and Anna Bronson, who were killed by a drunk driver on Independence Day last year.

Diane's sister, Annette Murray, said she will never forget the day it happened and will never understand why.

"They were driving on the highway and they didn't do anything other than what they were supposed to be doing, Murray said. "And someone was driving on the wrong side of the highway and crashed into them."

Kansas City police and other law enforcement agencies will be stepping up DUI enforcement starting August 17.

The extra patrols will be on the road through Labor Day.
