You Drink and Drive... You Lose

Last year more than 17,000 people died and more than 200,000 were hurt in crashes where police say alcohol was a factor.

In an effort to reduce those numbers, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is joining law enforcement agencies across the nation to support the 2004 "You Drink, You Drive...You Lose" national enforcement crackdown.

Since holidays are the deadliest times of year on American highways, the campaign will kick off this Friday.

Law enforcement officials will begin a 16 day crackdown leading into the Labor Day holiday.
