Law enforcement across the state will ramp up DUI patrols starting this weekend, as part of a roughly two-week campaign against impaired driving.

Teams will also visit bars to hand out cards that can be scanned with with smartphones to call a taxi, and will give bar workers taxi chips to help members of the military get home.

More than 25 agencies will participate, including Pierce County law enforcement.

    Too bad thay can’t do a “Crackhead Crackdown.” We need a new organization. “MAMA”…Mothers Against Meth Addicts”

    Well, thank goodness, Washington State has decided to use the people WE pay for to make our roads safer to travel. I really wish that those people who need to drink or do drugs, would do that in the safety of their homes.
