The Highway Patrol and local police will crackdown on drunk drivers as a part of Operation Firecracker.

Officers will step up DWI checkpoints across the state as a part of the annual campaign leading up to the Fourth of July.

Last year officials charged more than 2,100 during the effort, which runs from through July 6.
