Midwest enforces 4th of July drunk driving crackdown

Police officials in the Midwest states participated in the ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ campaign over the fourth of July holiday weekend in order to minimize the number of impaired drivers on the roadway during the deadliest holiday of the year.

According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, during the July 4 holiday period in 2010, there were 392 deaths from motor vehicle crashes.

Data shows that when a person’s blood alcohol level is .08 or higher, the chance of an accident occurring increases significantly.  In the Midwest region, the July 4 crackdown ran through July 6, but  officials have not yet calculated the data at this time.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a drunk driving crash, contact the Wisconsin drunk driving accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C., by calling 800-242-2874 today.
