A holiday DUII enforcement campaign is underway in Douglas County. Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputies are participating in a statewide traffic safety campaign focusing on DUII enforcement for the 2013 holiday season. The campaign is running from December 13, 2013 through January 2, 2014. As part of the campaign, the Sheriff’s Office is increasing traffic patrols directly focusing on DUII related investigations.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office along with the Oregon Department of Transportation encourages all drivers to celebrate the holidays safely, and follow these tips:

* Even one drink can impair your judgment and increase the risk of getting arrested for driving drunk—or worse, the risk of having a crash while driving.

* If you will be drinking, do not plan on driving. Plan ahead; designate a sober driver before the party begins.

* If you have been drinking, do not drive. Call a taxi, phone a sober friend or family member or use public transportation.

* Be responsible. If someone you know is drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel.

* If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact law enforcement. Your actions may save someone’s life, and inaction could cost a life.

Remember, it is never safe to drink and drive: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
