Police officials across the state of Wisconsin are cracking down on drunken drivers in order to reduce the number of alcohol-related crashes in the state. The campaign runs from August 24 through September 6, Labor Day.
The “Drunk Driving — Over the Limit. Under Arrest” campaign will consist of extra police officials out and for extended period of times in order to catch impaired drivers who are on the roadways.
Last year during the campaign, the town of Beloit made 15 OWI arrests and issued 233 traffic citations. Throughout all of 2009, 346 OWI arrests were made. According to the Police Sgt. in Beloit, Wisconsin has the highest number of drunken driving in the nation.
