Will the extra patrols ever end? The answer is clearly … “no”; they are here to stay. King County law enforcement is yet again putting extra officers on the road until September 2, 2013. The current emphasis patrol is entitled, ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’. This is a national campaign conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Washington State Patrol has its own DUI emphasis program. It is called ‘Target Zero’. The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over is encompassed within WSP’s Target Zero campaign. The joint campaigns aim to end traffic deaths and serious injuries. This current campaign is aimed at keeping the roads safe during the last few weeks of summer from people driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Last year extra patrol officers arrested 374 people for DUI during the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.
