Decorah Police say they will step up their effort through Tuesday to eliminate drunk drivers on the roads.

Police say if you have been drinking, arrange for a way to get a ride home.  They're also advising people to buckle up when in a car--it's the single most effective way to prevent serious injury in a crash.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says 164 people were killed in traffic accidents over the 2014 Fourth of July holiday where at least one driver had a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher.
