HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Alabama and Tennessee law enforcement agencies will kick off their Hands Across the Border campaign Friday.

It's a joint effort to crack down on drunk driving in both states and send a strong message to drivers, that impaired driving won't be tolerated. 

During this time, State troopers, highway patrol and other law enforcement agencies will setup sobriety check points.

They'll also be checking for seat belts, a valid driver's license and insurance.

The checkpoints will span across a few weeks and of course through the labor day weekend.
