Indiana police plan drunken driving crackdown

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Police throughout Indiana will take part in a 17-day effort to crack down on drunken driving starting Friday.

Indiana State Police say the campaign known as "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" is aimed at keeping people from drunken driving following a number of March sporting events and St. Patrick's Day. The effort runs through March 24.

State troopers and officers with more than 250 other Indiana law enforcement agencies will conduct high-visibility enforcement efforts including sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols.

The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute says Indiana had nearly 6,300 alcohol-related crashes last year with 97 fatalities. During the month of March, it had 524 alcohol-related crashes and six fatalities.
