More patrols begin on Wisconsin roadways

Posted: Updated:

State and local law enforcement are gearing up to make the roadways safer this holiday season.

Starting Friday, authorities will be beefing up patrols as part of the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign.

WisDOT uses dedicated federal funds to help coordinate OWI task forces across the state, combining multiple agencies with high-visibility enforcement efforts.

WisDOT also offers a free "Drive Sober" mobile app, which includes a blood alcohol estimator, designated driver selector, and find-a-ride feature that uses a smartphones GPS to find a safe ride home.
