Cops will be looking for drunk drivers this weekend. Major Dan Lonsdorf with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation says the New Year’s holiday weekend is unfortunately among the most dangerous on Wisconsin roads. The State Patrol and local police and sheriff’s departments will be on the lookout for drunk drivers, but despite their best efforts, only a small percentage will be caught. Lonsdorf notes the New Year’s holiday last year saw traffic crashes claim eight lives. Lonsdorf suggests means planning ahead by choosing a designated driver for your celebrations, and if you do have too much to drink, stay off the roads.
