The U.S. Department of Transportation is working to continue a positive trend of reducing drunk driving deaths in a majority of the U.S.
Tuesday they announced their Winter Holiday Impaired Driving Crackdown the same day the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announces a drop in drunk driving fatalities in 32 states last year.
The administration says more than 10,000 people died in alcohol impaired crashes, including 415 in the first half of December. That is down from 2009.
The crackdown involves thousands of law enforcement agencies across the country including Texoma.
