Drunk Driving remains the top cause of deaths on our local streets and highways.
During the holiday season, 18 law enforcement agencies will help protect the streets of Tulare and Kings Counties through the "Avoid the 18" campaign.
The California Office of Traffic Safety awarded the counties a $272,000 grant.
The Visalia Police Department will administer the grant for the both counties.
“The "Avoid the 18" grant has been very effective in combating impaired driving in the past, and the agencies involved, plan to continue that enforcement in both Tulare and Kings Counties.
