State law enforcement is cracking down hard on drunken drivers and boaters this Fourth of July weekend.

Live News 5 reports that the South Carolina Highway Patrol will have every single trooper, and even some administrative officers patrolling the roads. They've even enlisted the Department of Natural Resources to patrol waterways.

Expect DUI checkpoints throughout the state, especially heading home from area beaches. So be sure you buckle up, drive smart, and be safe.
