You Drink and Drive, You Lose

By  | 

More than 500 law enforcement agencies statewide are on the prowl for drunk drivers, and the crackdown begins Friday.

The You Drink and Drive, You Lose Campaign is aimed at preventing traffic deaths during the July 4 holiday period.

Police say drunk driving is not an accident or a victimless crime. Twenty counties across the state are receiving federal funding for overtime patrols.

During last year's campaign, there were 17 fatalities on Michigan roadways, two of which were alcohol-related.
