Thanksgiving is the launch date for a statewide campaign to nab drunken drivers throughout the holiday season.
The effort starts Nov. 24 and runs through Jan. 2. The campaign means beefed-up DUI enforcement on Newcastle and King County roads, as the Newcastle Police Department, Washington State Patrol and other law enforcement agencies join the crackdown.
Washington law enforcement officers advise all holiday partygoers to designate a sober driver, call a cab or choose not to drink alcohol.
