The Snohomish County DUI and Target Zero Task Force will conduct patrols focusing on DUI on Saturday, July 2 from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Representatives from the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, Washington State Patrol, Lynnwood Police Department and Mountlake Terrace Police Department will conduct high-visibility patrols throughout the county.

From 2019 to 2020, Snohomish County saw an 8% increase in impaired driving fatalities and a 55% increase in impaired driving crashes resulting in serious injury. The Target Zero Task Force says it wants all celebrants to have fun this holiday weekend and choose a safe and sober ride home.

Patrols will search for drivers impaired by alcohol, legal marijuana or other illegal drugs. Target Zero is the Washington State Highway Safety Commission’s plan to achieve zero traffic-related deaths and serious injuries by 2030. More information can be found at the Target Zero website.
