    Particularly, the Utah Highway Patrol is increasing efforts starting tonight July 3rd, and throughout the rest of the week / weekend.


    Salt Lake DUI Lawyer July 4th

    Last year 5 people died in traffic crashes on during the July 4th holiday. The Utah Highway Patrol will be doing everything in their power to make that number 0.

    According to the Utah Highway Patrol website here is the extra effort they have planned. A lot of it being centered around DUI Patrols and Blitzs:

    Over 115

    That’s the number of special enforcement shifts troopers will be working starting today and through the weekend.

    Those are in addition to our regular patrol shifts.

    The troopers working those shifts will be focusing on speed, distracted driving, aggressive driving and seat belts.

    Over 45

    That’s the number of extra DUI shifts troopers will be working for the 4th and through the weekend.

    That’s in addition to the over 100 extra DUI shifts that will be worked by other law enforcement agencies throughout the state.

    And we’ll be having a DUI blitz in the Salt Lake Valley on the night of the 3rd.

    Drive Sober

    If your plans include drinking alcohol, make sure they include a safe and sober ride home.

    There are more than 130 extra DUI patrols happening statewide from the 3rd through the 8th.

    We’re conducting a DUI blitz in the Salt Lake Valley on the night of the 3rd.

    Drinking and driving puts innocent lives at risk – designate a sober driver, call a ride share or cab – never drink and drive.
