Thinking of having a few drinks this weekend? If you do, don't get behind the wheel of a car. It's very likely that you'll end up in jail with costly fines, loss of your driver's license and possible prison time in your future. The state's annual drunk driving enforcement campaign is underway. Officers across Kansas will be working overtime looking for people who are driving while intoxicated. Gary Herman is with the Kansas Department of Transportation.
Herman says there were more than two thousand alcohol-related crashes last year in Kansas. The annual “You Drink, You Drive, You Lose” campaign is funded by a grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The operation continues through September 5.
