Extra DUI enforcement to run through Sept. 1



Law enforcement will do extra patrols for impaired drivers in Clark County. The patrols start Friday and run through Sept. 1.

Strict enforcement of the laws, combined with public education, reduces road deaths and serious-injury crashes, according to the Clark County Sheriff's Office. The agency encourages people to prevent an impaired driver from getting behind the wheel by calling a cab or a friend, and taking keys away.

Sheriff's deputies, along with officers from Battle Ground, Camas, La Center, Vancouver and Washougal police departments, and the Washington State Patrol, will commit to extra patrols during those 18 days.
