‘You Drink, You Drive, You Lose’ campaign to run through Labor Day

Lawrence Police

LAWRENCE (KSNT) – Officers from the Lawrence Police Department are joining nearly 150 Kansas law enforcement agencies in the 2014 “You Drink, You Drive, You Lose” enforcement campaign now through Labor Day.

Additional officers will focus on identifying drivers who are impaired by alcohol or otherwise operating their vehicle in an unsafe manner.

According to the Kansas Department of Transportation, Kansas averages four persons injured every day and one person killed every three days in an alcohol related crash.

Money to pay for it comes from a grant from the Dansas Department of Transportation.
