Iowa plans to step up drunk driving enforcement during Labor Day holiday

Police agencies across the state of Iowa are going to be cracking down on drunkĀ  driving during the Labor Day holiday.

The campaign, “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,” began last Thursday and will run through Labor Day weekend. Officers will have the most patrols out on nights and weekends because this is the most common times that people are driving impaired.

In 2009, there were 371 fatal crashes in Iowa and 96 of them were alcohol-related. A high percentage of motorists are between the age group 21-24. During this time last year when similar enforcement was done, there were seven fatal crashes and two of them involved drunk drivers.

If you or a loved one has been injured after being involved in a drunk driving accident, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Iowa drunk driving accident lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. by calling 877-327-2600.
