holiday weekend

“Over the Limit, Under Arrest” blitz begins for the holiday season

The national “Over the limit. Under arrest” campaign kicked off Thursday with the Mississippi Highway Patrol and local law enforcement agencies joining together to crack down on impaired driving.

The blitz will continue through Jan. 3. MHP will deploy extra manpower on Mississippi’s highways and set up checkpoints to stop drunk driving. The Oxford Police Department and Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department will be working along side of MHP to make sure the roads are safe in the city and the county. (December 20, 2010, Page 1)
