Texarkana, Arkansas Police look for impaired drivers while they step up patrols in preparation for Labor Day weekend
If you drink alcohol you better think twice before getting behind the wheel.

Over the next few weeks the Bossier City Police Department will be cracking down on drunk drivers.

Starting Friday, Aug. 15 police will take part in the nationwide campaign Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over sponsored by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Officers will step up DWI enforcement through the deployment of its DWI Task Force. The task force consists of officers who patrol the city's roadways with the sole purpose of targeting motorists who choose to drink and drive.

The campaign runs through Labor Day, Sept. 1.
