PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ Maine law enforcement agencies are sharing more than $440,000 in federal funds to keep drunken drivers off the road this holiday season.

The Maine Bureau of Highway Safety distributed the money this month and launched a program that's being called "DriveSober, Maine!''

The program provides money to 52 Maine law enforcement agencies to pay overtime for patrols at times and locations where drunken driving is most common.

The effort kicked off Dec. 1 and runs through Labor Day, and a special holiday enforcement crackdown begins Friday and runs through New Year's Day.
