Beginning August 17th, Decatur Police will have extra officers patrolling major thoroughfares for drunk drivers. 

The initiative is made possible through the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" grant through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, almost 30 people die everyday from alcohol-related crashes. 

Decatur police want to remind everyone to never drink and drive. 

Both Uber and Lyft are licensed to operate in Decatur. The campaign will run until September 3rd.
