Summer holidays can be deadly on the roads, so area agencies are teaming up for the upcoming holiday. Drink, Drive and Lose is the theme for this year's campaign.

Wednesday, folks gathered at Floral Haven cemetery to show what can happen if someone drinks and drives. Several area law enforcement agencies talked about their plans to crackdown on the problem over the next few weeks.

Broken Arrow Police officer Ed Ferguson, "This is a national crackdown that will target the effects of the intoxicated motorist. Our goal is to unite the efforts of more than 10,000 law enforcement agencies and thousands of traffic safety advocates throughout America."

The crackdown starts this Friday and runs through July 13th.
