TxDOT launches statewide 'Drink. Drive. Go to Jail.' campaign

Provided by the Texas Department of Public Transportation 

With the Labor Day holiday weekend around the corner, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) launched its statewide "Drink. Drive. Go to Jail" campaign today.

At a press conference in Houston, TxDOT kicked off the campaign and unveiled a mobile, vintage-style carnival trailer called the "DWI Not So Fun House" filled with motor skills games designed

to remind Texans that drinking and driving don't mix.

Leading up to Labor Day, the DWI Not So Fun House will travel to future events across the Lone Star State.

The "Drink. Drive. Go to Jail" campaign's enforcement period begins Friday, Aug. 15, and runs through Sept. 1.
