**St. Patrick’s Day Weekend DUI Patrols **
As part of the Western AZ DUI Task Force, the Kingman Police Department will be out in force this holiday weekend seeking out those who choose to drink and/or do drugs & drive. The Kingman Police Department is able to provide enhanced DUI enforcement during holidays and major local events due to a grant awarded by the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. Anyone who is caught driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol will be arrested, face hefty fines, the vehicle will be impounded for 30 days, their driver’s license will be suspended and they will be booked into jail. Those who choose to drink alcohol while celebrating the holiday are urged to designate a sober driver. It’s not luck. It’s smart!
If you observe a suspected impaired driver you are urged to immediately call your local law enforcement agency, provide a good description of vehicle and driver, direction of travel, and if possible a license plate to assist us in removing the subject from the road. Don’t confront the individual, simply be a good witness and keep a safe distance.
Drive Hammered, Get Nailed!
