Redmond Police Department to participate in DUI patrols

As the Washington Traffic Safety Commission announces the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” holiday campaign, director Darrin Grondel urges drivers to plan ahead. “Don’t let a DUI ruin your holidays. Before you leave home for a holiday party, think about how everyone can get home safely. Designate a sober driver, take a taxi, stay the night.”

As part of the campaign, extra officers will be canvassing roadways between Nov. 21 and Jan. 1 throughout King County searching for impaired drivers.

The Redmond Police Department will be among 27 departments, along with the Washington State Patrol, who will participate in Washington state’s first-ever "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign.

The King County Target Zero Task Force organizes and supports this enforcement effort.
