Halloween is coming up next week so this weekend is when all the celebrations and parties are going to happen. That means extra DUI patrols by the Utah Highway Patrol and Utah Police throughout the State.
You should never drink and drive, but you really don’t want to drink and drive in Utah this weekend. Chances are you will get caught.
The Utah Highway Patrol is planning an extra 170 shifts up until the day of Halloween.
Here are the details according to the UHP:
To help make sure everyone gets home safely, law enforcement officers throughout the state will be working more than 170 extra shifts to deter, detect and remove impaired drivers from Utah’s roads. Increased DUI enforcement includes a DUI checkpoint and two concentrated DUI blitzes.
So keep your eye out for several DUI checkpoints that will be spread throughout Tooele, Salt Lake City, Davis County, Utah County, and Weber County.
If convicted of a Driving Under the Influence in Utah it could cost you up to $10,000, fines, jail time, lose of your drivers license, lose of you job, etc.
Please don’t drive impaired whether it is from alcohol or drugs. Have a plan, use a designated driver, call a cab, or use Lyft, or Uber.
