"You Drink & Drive. You Lose." Enforcement

This holiday season, the Lincoln Police Department will join law enforcement agencies across the nation by participating in the "You Drink & Drive. You Lose." enforcement campaign in an effort to help save lives. This special holiday enforcement is scheduled from Saturday, November 30, 2013, through Wednesday, January 1, 2014. Officers will patrol throughout the city, focusing on high volume traffic areas.
