Drinking and Driving a Bad Idea -- Especially This Weekend

Posted July 3, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— Wherever you drive this weekend... drive safely. This is traditionally the deadliest holiday weekend for motorists.

But law enforcment plans to keep the numbers down. State officials kicked off a "Booze it or Lose it" Campaign this week. Authorities are setting up sobriety checkpoints in all hundred counties. So if you drink and drive, you're likely to get caught. Remember, point-oh-eight is the legal limit.
