Increased DUI enforcement on St. Patrick’s Day

Vancouver, Camas and Washougal Police Departments, Washington State Patrol and Clark County Sheriff’s Office will have additional officers enforcing the DUI laws

VANCOUVER – Thanks to a grant from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, law enforcement agencies in Southwest Washington have extra officers conducting DUI enforcement on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) to help keep roadways safer.

Vancouver, Camas and Washougal Police Departments, Washington State Patrol and Clark County Sheriff’s Office will have additional officers enforcing the DUI laws today, in an effort to keep drunk, drugged and high drivers off the road this St. Patrick’s Day.

Together we get there this St. Patrick’s Day if we choose to be safe. Be someone’s lucky charm and take one of these actions to prevent someone from driving impaired: 

• Use a taxi or rideshare

• Take public transportation

• Spend the night

• Leave your car at home

• Download and use the Safer Ride app to your phone (download for Android or Apple), which can help get you home safely

• Step in to prevent someone else from driving impaired

“You’ll lose a lot of green when you drink and drive. Expect to pay at least $10,000 in attorney’s fees, fines, court costs, lost time at work, higher insurance rates, car towing and repairs, and more if you get a DUI,’’ read a statement from Target Zero..

If you are driving and see a suspected impaired driver, call 9-1-1.
