Booze It & Lose It: Operation Firecracker

State and local law enforcement will conduct increased patrols and check points to remove impaired drivers from North Carolina highways through Sunday.

The latest campaign is called "Booze It & Lose It: Operation Firecracker" and began Monday and runs through Sunday.

Gov. Beverly Perdue said the state's law enforcement agencies
will crack down on impaired drivers.

There were 377 alcohol-related crashes during the July 4 holiday last summer, including 12 with fatalities, and officers charged more than 1,900 motorists with impaired driving.
