The Louisville Metro Police Department has made nearly 25 hundred DUI arrests this year, and they’re launching a new campaign aimed at  preventing  more offenses.

During the holiday season, the LMPD will hang posters in bars and liquor stores to encourage anyone who drinks to use a designated driver or taxi to get home.

Police Chief Robert White says there will also be more cars on DUI patrol during the holidays.

“We’re going to be very aggressive this year again, specifically during the holidays at enforcing driving, specifically looking for individuals that are driving under the influence,” he says.

The poster campaign will not cost the city any money.
