The Mississippi Highway Patrol is sending out a message to drivers to drive sober on New Year's Eve as part of a federal initiative called ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.’ Over the Christmas holiday, the Mississippi Highway Patrol arrested about 200 people throughout the state on drunken driving charges, and patrolmen will be out in full force on New Year's Eve at checkpoints throughout south Mississippi. Their goal is to keep drunk drivers off the road and save lives. Corporal Jason Gazzo of the Mississippi Highway Patrol says, "A lot of these bars will offer you a free cab ride. You're talking the inconvenience of going back and getting your car the next day." Corporal Gazzo says roadblocks will be set up at some of the Coast's busiest roadways, based on traffic video from M.D.O.T. cameras.
