Starting Friday through Sept. 1, Sandusky police officers plan on launching an aggressive special enforcement campaign targeting drunk drivers.
Dubbed Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, Sandusky police's participation in the national campaign aims to curb and end drunk driving.
National statistics indicate about 10,300 people died in 2012 from a drunk driving-related incident.
"It's tragic how many people lose their lives to drunk driving," Sandusky police Lt. Robert VanScoy said. "If the news reported that more than 10,000 people were killed in a preventable crime spree, the American public would be outraged."
He continued: "Driving drunk is totally inexcusable. We are hoping that Sandusky drivers get the message and take some simple steps to prevent a tragedy."
