"Drive Sober" campaign kicks off in Wisconsin

By  | 

MADISON, WI (WEAU) About 400 law enforcement agencies will be out in full force starting Friday for the annual "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says in the past decade, deaths from alcohol-related crashes in the state have dropped by 47%.

The overall number of alcohol-related crashes also dropped by 45%.

The DOT says, despite the decreases, too many people are still getting behind the wheel when they're impaired.

The campaign runs through Labor Day.
