Troopers Launch Drunken Driving Crackdown

AUGUST 25, 2004 - Posted at 5:31 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Arkansas state police said today that, in addition to their normal pursuit of drunken drivers, troopers will have a special crackdown over the next three weeks.

The agency will take part in a national campaign called "You Drink and Drive, You Lose."  The program begins Friday and runs through September 12.  The period covers the Labor Day holiday that marks the unofficial end of summer.

State police said officers in 140 other jurisdictions in Arkansas will also take part.

The national campaign started in 1999 and includes law enforcement efforts and a national advertising campaign.
