DUI Crackdown

August 27th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Police across the state are cracking down on drunk driving this Labor Day weekend and they have a new slogan: Drunk Driving. Over the Limit. Under Arrest. The crackdown on impaired drivers has already begun. Last year, more than 13 thousand people nationwide in alcohol related deaths. Randall Smith with the Florida Department of Transportation says there is just too much to lose driving drunk.

“People need to think about the responsibility they have to keep themselves safe and their fellow motorists. Also, if you drink and drive and get arrested, you gotta go home and explain that to your family and your employer. So, it just makes sense just to not drink and drive. There’s far too many risks involved.”

Labor Day Weekend in Florida is among the deadliest for drivers with 39 people killed on Florida roads last year.
