The Norman Police Department says it’s cracking down on drunken driving and will conduct multiple checkpoints in the coming months.
The Oklahoma police department said Monday that it hopes to have a highly visible program that will discourage people from getting behind the wheel after drinking. The DUI checkpoints will coincide with regular saturation patrols that are already being conducted.
Authorities say more than 10,000 people died nationwide in 2012 in highway crashes involving drivers with blood alcohol levels above the legal limit.
Norman police say the increased enforcement is part of the national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” initiative.
