DUI Saturation Patrol Out Friday Night
The news release says, "The purpose of this program is to saturate a pre-designated area with roving police officers that continually monitor vehicular traffic for signs of impaired driving. Patrols also place emphasis on speed, alcohol-related and safety belt violations. Police vehicles equipped for speed detection are deployed to apprehend speeding violators."
Last Friday, 114 citations were issued in the Grand Central District, for everything from unsafe vehicles to insurance violations.
As always, we remind you that Lyft, taxis, and the CTA are much cheaper than a fighting a DUI charge.
