Last updated on Thursday, October 4, 2007

(UNDATED) - The Governor’s Council on Impaired & Dangerous Driving and the Traffic Safety Division of the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute announced today the results of the recently concluded “Drunk Driving. Over The Limit. Under arrest” Labor Day crackdown.

Approximately 11-thousand citations were issued statewide as a result of the increased enforcement during the impaired driving mobilization that began on August 17th and concluded on September 9th.

Mike Cunegin, Executive Director of the Institute, says this year's "enforcement crackdown benefited Hoosiers in many ways.

"While its primary purpose was to deter impaired driving through high-visibility enforcement, the mobilization also countered other potential traffic hazards, and rid local streets and neighborhoods of criminal activity."
