In an effort to prevent serious crashes during the holiday season, local law enforcement agencies will be joining those around the state in cracking down on drunk drivers and those who aren't wearing their seatbelts.
The 'Booze and Belts' campaign runs from December 7 through December 16.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says last December there were more than 11,000 traffic crashes in the state causing 51 deaths and more than 3,500 injuries.
"We urge you to make the responsible decision to buckle up and drive sober," says Kewaunee County Sheriff Joski. "But if you don't, our intensified enforcement during the mobilization will increase your risks of getting caught."
Last year in Wisconsin, there were approximately 35,000 convictions for drunken driving and nearly 85,000 convictions for failure to fasten safety belts.
