As part of the campaign there are checkpoints near the state borders.  Police, sheriff deputies and state troopers will be set up at these markers.  They're looking for anyone driving under the influence.  Also authorities are on the lookout for drug offenders, fugitives, drivers with outstanding warrants and drivers who are driving without a license.
