We’re just two weeks away from Labor Day weekend and today law enforcement will kick-off its annual campaign “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”.

In every county across the state more patrols will be out on the road looking for impaired drivers.

Last year 15 people died during the Labor Day campaign with more than a quarter of those from alcohol related crashes.

A total of 359 people died in alcohol-related crashes in 2017, making it the deadliest year for crashes tied to alcohol since 2006.

The initiative runs through September 3, the end of the Labor Day weekend.
