June DUI emphasis patrols kicked off Washington’s “100 Safe Days of Summer” campaign. The 2022 campaign involves law enforcement agencies deploying increased patrols throughout the summer to keep our roadways safe. The campaign is part of a collaboration with WSP’s Target Zero Task Force. It is aimed at explaining the dangers of summer driving and providing parents with actions to educate their young Washington teen drivers of the perils of drinking, drugging and driving. According to AAA, over 7,100 people in the United States died in teenage driver-related crashes from 2011 to 2020. Of concern is the fact that nearly half these deaths came during the summer months when it is easy to get complacent behind the wheel. Target Zero’s goal is to have zero traffic fatalities or serious injuries in Washington by the year 2030. It is a lofty goal, no doubt, but one that can be achieved if everyone gets educated on the dangers of drinking, drugging and driving.
