Don't drink and drive this 4th of July.

Operation Checkpoint Strikeforce kicks off this weekend both upstate and downstate to catch drunk drivers.

The six-month long campaign netted more than 300 arrests last year, where alcohol played a role in more than half of Delaware's fatal crashes.

Being drunk while boating is also illegal. The Maritime Unit's Marine One will be operating on Delaware's waterways.
