 For a city built on beer, the signs surround us. Beverages1 flow freely for most any event. 

 
"I’ve been around and seen some things, and as far as the drunkest city goes, it’s still Milwaukee."
 
No.1 that’s where Milwaukee landed on the list of 40 drunkest cities on the online new site the Daily Beast. The study looked at how often people drink, the number of heavy and binge drinkers and the number of alcohol-related deaths.
 
"Oh, it’s disgraceful. I’m embarrassed to say we live here." 
 
Judy and Paul Jenkins have heard enough about drinking and drugs. Their daughter and granddaughter were hit and killed by an impaired2 driver. They’re standing3 behind the sheriff’s New Year’s push.
 
"I’m not naive4 enough to believe that people are going to change their drinking behavior overnight."
 
What Sheriff Clarke is intent on changing is drinking and driving.
 
"You are in fact moving along with a loaded weapon -- 4,000 to 6,000 pounds of steel that no human body can win a battle against," 
 
Nineteen agencies are joining in for a total of 108 officers on the roads New Year's Eve. A new county vehicle can pack them in. 
 
"We put front this side, front that side. And then we can also go to the side here, we have a building put to other people." 
 
The Jenkins hope to see this effort get more impaired drivers off the roads as they continue to push for tougher laws.
 
"We can lose the distinction. Wouldn't that be great to read in the Daily Beast Wisconsin is no longer the drunkest city in the United States?"
