DUI Patrols In 19th District Saturday Night

Everyone knows not to drink and drive, but Saturday night will be an especially bad time for it, because the CPD's DUI Strike Force will be out in the 19th District.

The special patrols will begin at 6pm on Saturday and continue until 2am 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."

In a similar saturation in the 25th District last weekend, 44 violations were written for everything from unsafe vehicle violations to insurance violations.

The 19th District includes all of Uptown south of Lawrence. Its boundaries are Lawrence, Fullerton, the lake and the river.

Pro tip: Lyft, Uber and taxis are a lot cheaper than fighting a DUI charge.
