LAKE STATION | A recent national police crackdown aimed at impaired driving and motorcycle riding proved a success, police Lt. John McDaniel said.

Lake Station police reported more than 14 drunk driving arrests, 21 other significant arrests and 116 citation made in the city during the enforcement effort, which ran from Aug. 16 to Sept. 2.

"I want to thank all of our police officers for their hard work and dedication to making our roadways safer this past Labor Day," McDaniel said.

Lake Station police joined forces with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and nearly 10,000 law enforcement agencies across the country in taking part in the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.
