As the unofficial end to summer approaches, look for more law enforcement on the roads.
The Omaha Police Department will be among those taking part in the nationwide “You Drink You Drive You Lose” campaign over the upcoming Labor Day holiday. The Nebraska Office of Highway Safety has awarded $26,051 to fund extra officers on the streets to detect and apprehend alcohol and drug impaired drivers.
The operation begins Friday and runs through Monday, September 2nd at various dates and times throughout the city. Enforcement efforts will focus on the weekends.
The La Vista Police Department will also be running impaired driving enforcement now through Labor Day.
