Traffic Enforcement for Labor Day Weekend - 08/10/14
The Hood River County Sheriff's Office will be increasing patrols for traffic enforcement from August 15th to September 7th. Enforcement will focus on seatbelt use and Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants. The Sheriff's Office receives grant funding to increase patrols during this time period through the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration. The goal is to reduce injuries and fatalities from crashes that are typically higher than normal in this time period. We hope to achieve safer roadways through high visibility enforcement and media campaigns. The Sheriff's Office urges everyone to drive with care over the busy Labor Day Weekend. Please report drivers suspected of DUII or other driving violations by calling 911 or the Sheriff's Office dispatch center at 541-386-2711.
