MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin’s Labor Day traffic safety campaign is getting underway.

About 330 law enforcement agencies throughout the state are keeping a special eye out for drunk drivers.

The campaign is called “Drive Sober, or Get Pulled Over.” It starts Friday and runs for about two-and-a-half weeks through Labor Day.

The state DOT said 37 percent of all traffic deaths in Wisconsin last year involved alcohol.

State Patrol Major Sandra Huxtable says driving drunk is “entirely preventable … and it continues to devastate individuals, families and whole communities.”

She said alcohol-related crashes killed 223 people last year in the Badger State, and another 3,000 were injured.
