Thousands of officers are working overtime this labor day weekend to keep drunk drivers off the road, in a campaign called "Drink, Drive,Go to Jail". It's a state wide campaign to stop motorists from drinking and getting behind the wheel of a car. Officers say it's important for everyone to remember that if you're caught you will go to jail. But that's not all; your license will be taken away, your car impounded and you'll receive a state fine.
"The state of Texas is going to send you a bill anywhere from 1500 to 3000 dollars depending on how many DUI's you've received since September 1st, you are looking at between 5 and 7 thousand dollars for one night on the town of drinking," says Kilgore Police Officer, Tony Stone.
