2009 Labor Day Crackdown

August 21 - September 7

Drunk driving remains one of America’s deadliest crimes. In 2008, NHTSA estimates that 11,773 people died in highway crashes involving a driver or motorcycle operator with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher.

This is why GHSA Members have joined forces with law enforcement officers across the country to take part in the Drunk Driving. Over the Limit. Under Arrest crackdown on impaired driving during the Labor Day holiday period. State-specific crackdown efforts are listed below. Drunk driving laws and additional resources are available on the GHSA Drunk Driving Laws page. For information on the national campaign, read GHSA's news release or visit
