Extra DUI patrols campaign in King County nets 656 arrests
For the Reporter
The recent Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over DUI enforcement campaign in King County stopped and arrested 656 motorists under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and statewide, law enforcement officers arrested 2,723 drivers for DUI.
The campaign was conducted from Nov. 27 to Jan. 1.
Last year in King County, during the same time period, officers on routine and extra patrols arrested 795 people for DUI.
Auburn and Pacific joined other police departments, the King County Sheriff's Office and the Washington State Patrol participated in the extra DUI patrols, with the support of the King County Target Zero Task Force.
The Washington Traffic Safety Commission funded the extra patrols.
These and all extra patrols are part of Target Zero — striving to end traffic deaths and serious injuries in Washington by 2030.
