DUI Strike Force To Patrol 20th District On Saturday Night
The special patrols will begin at 7pm on Saturday and continue until 3am Sunday. The press release mentions that "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."
The 20th District includes everything in Uptown north of Lawrence. Its boundaries are Lawrence, Devon, the lake and the river.
Pro tip: Lyft, Uber and taxis are a lot cheaper than fighting a DUI charge.
