INDIANA — Beginning later this month, the Indiana State Police and more than 250 Indiana law enforcement agencies will start cracking down on drunk driving across the state.
The new initiative, called Operation Pull Over, will run from Feb. 28 until March 23. During the same time period last year, over 388 crashes on Indiana highways were linked to alcohol or drugs, which prompted this year's increased enforcement. Of those wrecks, four resulted in fatalities.
Police will work to deter drunk and impaired driving by increasing the number of sobriety patrols and check points throughout the state.
Doug Carter, superintendent of the Indiana State Police, said if you plan to drive, you should always designate a sober driver.
