Local law enforcement is warning people celebrating New Year's Eve to not drink and drive.

Wood County Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn says if people think they're going to drink and drive and get away with it, they're mistaken.

The sheriff says a grant from the Department of Public Safety is covering the overtime rates for deputies to be out patrolling this holiday. They'll be looking for impaired drivers and aggressive drivers, and they'll be vigilant in places that have seen accidents before.

"What goes up must come down, and it's a question of how lucky do they feel, because they might hit a house, they might hit a car, and they might hit a person and could kill someone," Sheriff Wasylyshyn said.

That's the last thing anyone would want to do while celebrating.

Officials from the Toledo Police Department also want to remind people that it's illegal to fire a weapon within city limits.
