LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The Lincoln Police Department is sharing an alarming statistic as people gather for the holidays.

Police say there was a crash involving an impaired driver almost every day in 2021.

In total, 337 drivers were arrested on suspicion of drinking or using drugs.

Authorities say holiday celebrations can quickly turn into a time of mourning if you’re not responsible.

They’re telling everyone to have a plan to get where you’re going without putting your life and others at risk.

LPD is joining the nationwide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign beginning this Friday.

It’s being funded by the Nebraska Department of Transportation’s Highway Safety Office.

The campaign will continue through New Year’s Eve.
