Project Roadblock: It's not ok to drive drunk

Drivers can expect to see a public service initiative aimed at curbing drunk drivers during the New Years weekend.  KPLC 7 News is joining broadcasters across the country in an effort known as Project Roadblock.

The message is simple.  It is not ok to drive drunk.  It is not ok to let someone you know drive drunk.

According to the Mothers Against Drunk Driving website, one in three people will be involved in an alcohol-related crash in their lifetime. MADD's statistics claim an estimated 2 million drivers are on the roads who have had three or more prior drunk driving offenses.
