You drink, you drive, you lose! That's the name of a state-wide policing effort going into effect this week. It comes just in time for the Labor Day weekend.
Through September 12th, police agencies throughout the state will be operating on overtime. They'll be setting up road blocks and increasing their patrols in search of intoxicated drivers. And unlike a similar program unveiled last week to catch speeders, this one is not just limited to the interstates.
Last year, the campaign resulted in more than a thousand tickets and at least 17 DUI arrests. It's being coordinated by the Central Alabama Law Enforcement Committee.
