A friendly reminder not to drink and drive after that Saturday night Halloween Party…

DUI

More than a dozen people were arrested on the Saturday before Halloween last year for impaired driving.

The Snohomish County DUI and Target Zero Task Force will be conducting DUI emphasis patrols Saturday October 27th, 2017 from 7:00 p.m. through 3:00 a.m.  Representatives from Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, Lynnwood Police Department, and Edmonds Police Department will be conducting high visibility patrols throughout the county.

Last year’s Target Zero emphasis patrol in Snohomish County arrested 14 DUI’s on 10/28/17 (the Saturday prior to Halloween).  The Traffic Safety Task Force would like to remind Halloween party-goers to plan ahead and arrange for a sober ride before they go out.

The Sheriff’s Office will be tweeting during the emphasis from the Snohomish County Target Zero Twitter account, @SnoCoTargetZero. Updates will be provided via twitter as they are available.

Target Zero is the Washington State Traffic Safety Commission’s plan for zero traffic related deaths and serious injuries by 2030.  More information can be found at www.snocotargetzero.org or www.targetzero.com
