Local authorities this month are involved in a special emphasis patrol called drive hammered get nailed.  Angie Ward the program manager for the Washington Traffic Safety Commission says the emphasis patrol continues through September 3.

Ward says last year during the emphasis patrol 114 people were arrested for driving under the influence. And Ward says it's not just local authorities who spot the impaired drivers.  Ward says often other drivers see them and are sometimes puzzled as to how to report a drunk driver.  Ward says it's easy just call 911 no matter what time of day or night. Ward says despite what some people may think a drunk driver is a major emergency that needs to be reported to 911.
