Orlando 2012 Memorial Day DUI Saturation Patrol!
Law enforcement across the country, including here in Central Florida, are stepping up drunk-driving enforcement over this holiday weekend. This Friday night, May 25, 2012, numerous police agencies in Orange County will be patrolling West Orange County with 50+ officers dedicated solely to looking for drunk drivers in Windermere, Ocoee, Oakland and the surrounding areas. The operation will run from 8:30pm till approximately 4:00am.
A saturation patrol is different than a DUI checkpoint in that there are no warning signs posted and every car is not stopped and checked out. A saturation patrol involves law enforcement officer conducting regular traffic enforcement, making regular traffic stops, with the concentration on making DUI arrests. With 50+ cops out there, there will end up being lots of traffic stops and inevitably, lots of DUI arrests.
If you plan to drink, plan not to drive. Designate a driver. Call a cab. Dealing with a DUI is not a good way to start your summer.
