If you’ve noticed more officers on the streets and highways, you’re seeing the result of the state’s latest emphasis patrols.

The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign continues this week with extra officers on extra patrols all around the Yakima Valley. The emphasis patrols are designed to keep more officers on roads to search for both drunk and drugged drivers.

The Traffic Safety Commission’s Shelly Baldwin tells KIT News, “our goal is the make sure the roads are safe and free of impaired drivers and for our officers to be bored because they can’t find anyone breaking the law.”

Unfortunately officers have been busy as officers have been performing up to six extra hours of patrols per night.

The patrols are funded by your tax dollars. Dollars that are collected by the State’s traffic safety Commission.

The agency that help keep emphasis like these rolling every year the state’s drive sober or get pulled over campaign continues through the upcoming labor day weekend September 2.
