Law enforcement agencies in Grant County to crack down on drunken drivers

Posted: Updated:
GRANT COUNTY, Wis. (KWWL) -

Law enforcement in Grant County will be stepping up patrols as a way to combat drunk driving.

It's part of the annual “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” national campaign taking place from Aug. 19 to Sept. 5.

“Our officers will be patrolling in greater numbers and for longer hours to arrest drunken drivers before they kill or injure themselves or an innocent victim,” said Sheriff Nate Dreckman.

Last year, 190 people were killed and nearly 2,900 were injured in alcohol related crashes in Wisconsin.
