(UNDATED) - With the arrival of the holidays, public safety officials are warning people to make smart decisions when it comes to getting behind the wheel.

They launched their "Arrive Alive in 2012" campaign Tuesday.

Police are partnering with liquor stores, the hospitality industry and even the prosecutor's office to encourage people to get a designated driver, a cab or just stay in a hotel if they've had too much alcohol.

"I am here to tell the folks who believe that they can drive and drink, I am here to tell them that mine is all inclusive right here. My hotel is all inclusive. We're going to give you a ride, we're going to give you something to eat -- bologna probably -- and we'll give you a bright orange jumpsuit to eat and sleep in," Marion County Sheriff John R. Layton said.

The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute reports last year 24.7 percent of all deadly crashes involved alcohol.
