Texas Authorities Launch Campaign Against Drunk Drivers

Texas Law Enforcement is stepping up its fight against drunk drivers.

Starting Friday, Texas authorities are taking part in the "You Drink and Drive, You Lose." National Campaign officials say the campaign is important because in 2002, 47% of crash fatalities in Texas were alcohol related.

The penalties for a first offense include $2,000 in fines, up to six-months in jail, and drivers license suspension for up to a year.
