This year, local, county and state law enforcement are joining forces and setting up sobriety check points all weekend long. Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper George Brown, "One violation in regards to drunk driving is too many. We obviously have zero tolerance for drunk driving and this is the reason, drunk drivers cause collisions and people are injured are killed."

The officers working this weekend say speeders, drunk drivers, and people not wearing seatbelts are more likely to get cited.
