drunk drugged high

Vancouver, Wash. –On May 5, 2017, thanks to a grant from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, law enforcement agencies throughout SW Washington will have additional officers out enforcing DUI laws in an effort to keep drunk, drugged and high drivers off the road. Officers, who are also drug recognition experts, will be among those conducting these increased DUI patrols.

If you or someone you care about will be out drinking, or consuming other intoxicants, make sure to celebrate responsibly. Select a sober, designated driver, or use mass transit, taxis, or a rideshare service to get around town. As a reminder, Uber is offering first time users a special coupon code for $25 toward their first trip. Sign up for the Uber coupon code RIDEHOMEVANC at https://get.uber.com/go/ridehomevanc.

If you are driving and see a suspected impaired driver, call 911.
