Cinco de Mayo

A reminder for this weekend…

If you see more police on the roads around Everett, Washington this weekend there’s a reason why…

The Snohomish County DUI and Target Zero Task Force will be conducting DUI emphasis patrols Saturday May 4th, 2019 from 7:00 p.m. through 3:00 a.m. Representatives from Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, Lynnwood Police Department, Mountlake Terrace Police Department, Mukilteo Police Department, and the Washington State Patrol will be doing high visibility patrols throughout the county. The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis board will also be conducting bar enforcement. This patrol coincides with Cinco de Mayo celebrations.

The Washington State Patrol Mobile Impaired Driving Unit (MIDU) will be on hand to quickly process DUI drivers. The MIDU is a self-contained 36 foot motorhome that has been retrofitted as a mobile DUI processing center and incident command post. When requested, the MIDU travels across the state in support of law enforcement efforts during DUI emphasis patrols.

Patrols will be looking for drivers impaired by alcohol, legal marijuana or other illegal drugs. Target Zero is the Washington State Traffic Safety Commission’s plan for zero traffic related deaths and serious injuries by 2030.
