The Austin Police Department has announced the addition of a mobile lab to help fight Driving While Intoxicated in Austin, Texas. The 38-foot long recreational vehicle is equipped with breath testing equipment, monitors for reviewing arrest videos, restrooms and a holding area for suspected drunk drivers.
The vehicle is named for Drew Bolin and Clinton Hunter, two officers killed while on-duty by drunk drivers.
The custom made RV costs $250,000 which was paid for by Capital Metro, a local transportation organization. It replaces a smaller van, and will allow officers to more quickly process motorists arrested for drunk driving in Austin.
