Kentucky Law Enforcement is getting tough on drunk driving during the holidays.

Starting today, through January 1st, police will be watching for drunk drivers as part of their Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over crackdown.

During 2012 there were 168 deaths due to drunk driving in Kentucky along with over 2 thousand injuries and almost 5 thousands crashes.

Police say the holidays are an especially dangerous time, with more people getting behind the wheel after holiday parties.

Their message is simple… If you drink and drive they will see you, stop you, and you be will be arrested.

And to help drivers make the right decisions the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety has issued a No DUI Kentucky App for your smartphone.

The App has a blood alcohol calculator, a one touch feature to call police if you suspect a drunk driver and a list of local taxi services.

The App is available as a free download from the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, and The Windows Phone Store.
