ATLANTA (AP) -- Law enforcement officials in six states are launching their 23rd annual "Hands Across the Border" campaign aimed at catching motorists driving under the influence.

Sunday is the official start of the six-day campaign, which includes law enforcement agencies in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida.

Police, sheriff's deputies and state troopers will be setting up checkpoints near their state borders and will also be on the lookout for drug offenders, fugitives, drivers with outstanding warrants and those driving without a license.

Authorities note the legal blood alcohol limit in every state is .08.
