Texas state officials will be cracking down on DWIs during the Labor Day holiday and will begin to step up patrol on Aug. 19.
Thousands of police officers and state troopers across the country will be patrolling as a part of the Drink, Drive, Go to Jail will run from Aug. 19 until Labor Day, Sept. 5. The Texas Department of Public Safety has stated that they have no tolerance for drinking and driving and a person will be arrested if they shows signs of impairment.
In 2010, there were 25,032 alcohol-related crashes in the state of Texas and officials want to cut down this number. A multi-media campaign will run in order to inform people of the extra enforcement and encourage them to drive safely.
