FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Law enforcement agencies in northeastern Indiana are joining a national crackdown on impaired driving that will run through Labor Day.
The Fort Wayne and New Haven police departments and the Allen County Sheriff’s Department are part of the “‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign with zero tolerance for anyone attempting to drive while impaired.
Fort Wayne Police Lt. Tony Maze tells WANE-TV (http://bit.ly/1t0KCjR ) officers will be working overtime to identify and catch impaired drivers. He says, “Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be immediately arrested and taken to jail.”
Allen County had 373 alcohol-related total collisions last year. Six resulted in fatalities.
