DUII Enforcement Patrols - 09/01/17

Roseburg Police Officers participated in a traffic safety campaign focusing on DUII enforcement during the month of August. During the month of August, the Roseburg Police Department arrested 6 people for DUII.

The Roseburg Police Department along with the Oregon Department of Transportation encourages all drivers to plan ahead, and follow these tips:

* Even one drink can impair your judgment and increase the risk of getting arrested for driving drunk--or worse, the risk of having a crash while driving.
* If you will be drinking, do not plan on driving. Plan ahead; designate a sober driver before the party begins.
* If you have been drinking, do not drive. Call a taxi, phone a sober friend or family member or use public transportation.
* Be responsible. If someone you know is drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel.
* If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact law enforcement. Your actions may save someone's life, and inaction could cost a life.

Remember, it is never safe to drink and drive: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
