Labor Day Crackdown is Underway

by Ramonica R. Jones  

Texas now leads the nation in drunken driving deaths. And local law enforcement agencies are planning to make our streets a little safer during the Labor Day Crackdown.

The Drink, Drive, Go to Jail campaign kicked off last Friday and ends on Labor Day. State troopers and thousands of other officers and deputies will be making an extra effort to spot and stop drunk drivers on Texas roads and highways.

Last year, the state reported more than a thousand drunken driving fatalities.
