Lubbock Law Enforcement Searching For Drunk Drivers

With all the tailgating going on this weekend, local law enforcement is reminding everyone to drink responsibly.

While you're at the game, area law enforcement will be watching and waiting. And drinking and driving will be among their primary concerns this weekend. The Lubbock Police Department has a strong message for those would-be offenders.

"Zero tolerance," said Sgt. Ronnie Sowell, of the Lubbock Police Department. "If you drink and drive, you are going to be arrested."

Among the many reasons not to drink and drive, there is one more. Thanks to a new law, those convicted of DWI will have to pay a surcharge of at least $1,000 for the next three years.
