HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Drivers are advised that from August 20 through Labor Day, September 7, the Reno County Sheriff’s Office and Hutchinson Police will join other police agencies across Kansas in a crackdown aimed at removing impaired drivers from the roadways.

During "You Drink. You Drive. You Lose" extra officers and deputies will be working traffic enforcement in hopes of reducing the number of impaired drivers on the road, the accidents they can cause, and the fatalities that result.

Funding for the campaign comes from a grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration administered by the Kansas Department of Transportation.
