Drunk-driving crackdown planned

March 7, 2013

Police throughout Indiana plan a 17-day effort to crack down on drunken driving starting Friday. The campaign, called “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over," is aimed at preventing drunk driving during March sporting events and St. Patrick's Day. The effort runs through March 24. State troopers plan sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols. Indiana had nearly 6,300 alcohol-related crashes last year with 97 fatalities.
