Emphasis patrols set for the holidays

Thanksgiving takes on a special meaning this year as the holiday Drive Hammered, Get Nailed campaign officially begins that day.

Between Nov. 25, 2010 and Jan. 2, local law enforcement will conduct extra DUI patrols throughout Kitsap County to rid the roads of impaired drivers during the holiday season.

“In Washington, impaired driving is still the most frequent contributing factor in deadly collisions. One life lost is one too many. Please do your part to be responsible, plan ahead and choose a safe ride home,” said Marsha Masters, Kitsap County Traffic Safety Task Force, Target Zero Manager.
