During the "You Drink. You Drive. You Lose." campaign just completed, the Hays Police Department conducted overtime saturation patrols to aggressively enforce Kansas impaired driving laws.

During the campaign, officers made nine impaired driving arrests and wrote two speeding citations, and 48 other citations and arrests. Thirty-eight vehicle stops were made during the campaign, Sgt. Phillip Gage said in a news release.  

"You can count on this department to vigorously enforce impaired driving and other traffic laws all through the year. We will continue to do so because, while the "You Drink. You Drive. You Lose." campaign may be over, we are always committed to enforcing impaired driving and other traffic laws," Gage said.

The traffic enforcement campaign is supported by a federal grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation.
