AUSTIN, Texas -- Law enforcement agencies across Texas will step up
enforcement to stop drinking and driving during the Labor Day holiday
period. Texas is part of the Labor Day nationwide impaired-driving
crackdown coordinated and funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration.

Convicted drunk drivers could spend up to $17,000 for bail, fines, legal
fees, court appearances, court-ordered classes, insurance increases and
other expenses. More alcohol-related crashes occur between 2 a.m. and
2:59 a.m. than during any other hour of the day, and more crashes happen
on Saturday than on any other day of the week. So, drivers are urged to
realize that no one is immune to the effects of alcohol, and to always
seek a sober ride home.

"Labor Day is the traditional end-of-summer celebration. In Texas, 34
percent of all alcohol-related fatal crashes happen during the summer,"
said Carol T. Rawson, TxDOT's Traffic Operations Division Director.
"Three hundred sixty-six people died during the months of May through
August last year in alcohol-related crashes. That's nothing to celebrate,
and law enforcement will be out in force as part of the Drink. Drive. Go
to Jail. stepped-up enforcement effort and public awareness campaign."

The Texas Department of Transportation's Drink. Drive. Go to Jail.
campaign began August 17 and runs through September 3, 2012. For the
first time, TxDOT is asking people to pledge to choose a safe ride home
by texting SAVE to 77000. Texans who make the pledge are entered to win a
Honda Ruckus scooter and helmet. The deadline to enter is 11:59 p.m. CST
on Sept. 2, 2012. Bars and restaurants in major markets are also
participating in the campaign by allowing TxDOT to install Drink. Drive.
