As Labor Day weekend approaches, Chipley police gear up to hit the streets.

Chipley police will be out patrolling the streets for impaired drivers.

Violators face jail time, fines and losing their license.

"The main goal is just to save lives and prevent people from driving drunk and anytime we can participate nationally in an effort to saves lives that helps our citizens and other motorists," said Lieutenant Chipley Police Dept. Scott Thompson.

Officers say research has shown that high-visibilty enforcement like the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign reduces alcohol impaired driving fatalities by as much as 20 percent.
