Starting today and continuing through Independence Day, ISP Troopers will join members of the North Idaho DUI Task Force to help stop impaired drivers before a tragedy can occur.
The extra patrol’s this holiday weekend are a joint effort by law enforcement to reduce the number of injuries and fatalities that occur due to impaired drivers.
In Idaho, hundreds of people are injured and killed each year due to impaired driving. ISP Troopers see the damage firsthand and know lives and families are shattered when a loved one is lost due to an impaired driver.
Law enforcement officers with the North Idaho DUI Task Force will also be looking for impaired drivers operating a boat or watercraft.
Whatever your holiday plans include, make sure you celebrate the 4th safely and always drive sober.
