As part of the national enforcement initiative, "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,” PennDOT, state police and municipal police are focusing their efforts on reducing alcohol and drug-related crashes through Labor Day.
Funding comes from part of PennDOT's statewide distribution of $4.2 million in federal funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
During last year's Labor Day weekend, there were 150 alcohol-related crashes and two fatalities as well as 47 drug-related crashes and seven fatalities.
The legal blood-alcohol content in Pennsylvania is 0.08 percent for motorists 21 and over. Driving under the influence penalties can include jail time, license suspension and fines of between $500 and $5,000.
