Washington State Patrol DUI emphasis patrols now in effect

The Washington State Patrol has released a Media Bulletin informing the public that they are stepping up their efforts to apprehend drivers who are intoxicated during this holiday season. Working with local law enforcement agencies, the Patrol is working overtime shifts, especially on Friday and Saturday nights when many people may be intoxicated after attending holiday parties.

The Patrol reports that there were 31 alcohol-related deaths during the holiday season last year due to drivers who drove while intoxicated.

The Patrol urges people who are drinking alcohol at parties and restaurants to use a designated driver or to call a taxi cab. They also ask people to call 9-1-1 if to report drunk drivers.
