Oklahoma officers crack down on impaired drivers

LAWTON, Okla._Law enforcement agencies around the state are working together under a national campaign to crack down on people driving under the influence.

“Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” is a nationwide program designed to cut down on drunk driving. The program will run from August 15 through Labor Day on September 1.

Officers will be aggressively looking for impaired drivers and will arrest anyone caught driving under the influence.

Officials with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said, on average, there is one vehicular death involving alcohol every 51 minutes across the country. Twelve people died during Labor Day weekend last year in Oklahoma, three of them were in alcohol-related accidents; an additional 43 people were injured in alcohol-related accidents.
