Booze It & Lose It On Halloween

Halloween has become a holiday celebrated by all ages, which has brought a new crop of problems beyond a sick stomach from candy. Adults see it as an opportunity to be a child again, but they also tend to enjoy the holiday with adult beverages, leading to the North Carolina Department of Transportation's Booze It & Lose It campaign.

With the large numbers of children trick or treating during the holiday period, mobile DUI checkpoints have been stationed in cities and towns across NC to prevent drunk driving incidents. Last year, over 750 DUI charges were levied when the campaign ran from October 26th - 31st. There will be mobile DUI checkpoints at random locations and stepped-up patrols of areas where bars are located.The NCDOT would like to remind people to find a designated driver or take a cab, it's just not worth it!

Some sobering statistics from last year:
