OKLAHOMA CITY -

Friday, Governor Mary Fallin announced the Department of Public Safety will have more law enforcement in place to crack down on driving while impaired, this St. Patrick's Day weekend.

Law enforcement agencies across the state will be participating in “ENDUI”, a campaign that was started in November to prevent impaired driving. ENDUI teams will be conducting sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols at several locations throughout Oklahoma.

Last year during St. Patrick's Day weekend, 77 people were seriously injured and four died as a result of alcohol related accidents in Oklahoma.

Governor Mary Fallin also signed an executive order to re-establish the Governor's Impaired Driving Prevention Council. The council will review and evaluate impaired driving in the state and find ways to prevent such incidences.
