No Holiday Nog If You're Driving

The Idaho Transportation Department just sent out their annual news release reminding you not to drink and drive over the holidays.

Idaho law enforcement agencies are conducting education campaigns and high-visibility enforcement patrols statewide searching for drunk or impaired drivers through Nov. 30. ITD's Office of Highway Operations and Safety is providing funds through a federal grant for the overtime patrol effort.

Last year, impaired driving contributed to 1,567 crashes on Idaho's highways and caused 65 fatalities.
