News Release
Average BAC in June Alcohol DUIIs was 0.14% - 07/08/20

 

The Beaverton Police Department is again participating in a year-long National Traffic Safety Campaign in 2020. The focus of this campaign is taking impaired drivers off our streets, keeping Beaverton a safe city to travel and live.

Officers were out on targeted patrols for impaired drivers during the month of June and made 31 DUII arrests. Of the 31 arrests, two people refused to take a breath test and a warrant for a blood draw was granted, five were believed to be under the influence of controlled substances, and two were under the age of 21. Of those charged with an alcohol-related DUII, and who provided a breath sample, the average BAC was 0.14%.

The highest BAC in June was 0.32% and the lowest was 0.06%. Nine people had a BAC of 0.15% or higher.

During the month of July, officers will continue their efforts to take impaired drivers off the streets of our "No Refusal" city. This High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) detail was paid for by grant funds from Oregon Impact and ODOT. "Drunk Driving", "Impaired Driving", or "Buzzed Driving" all have the potential to claim lives and will often result in jail time. The men and women of the Beaverton Police Department ask you to please use a designated driver or find an alternate, sober ride home.
