Thanks to a grant from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, law enforcement agencies in southwest Washington will have additional officers conducting DUI enforcement throughout the year to help keep our roadways safer.

If you or someone you care about is attending a party, and may also be consuming intoxicants, make sure to select a designated sober driver in advance, call a sober friend, or use a car service instead of getting behind the wheel impaired.
