The Spokane County Target Zero Campaign saw an increase in DUI suspects this year. DUI emphasis patrols were held from June 21st through July 7th across Spokane County to discourage drivers from driving under the influence.
Law enforcement arrested 154 DUI suspects during this year's emphasis patrol. This shows an increase from last year's 99 DUI's during the same time period. In 2012 over half of traffic deaths in Spokane County involved an impaired driver.
The Spokane County Sheriff's Office would like to remind citizens not to drive impaired so we can have a fatal free and safe summer.
