Crack Down on DUI
For thoughtful people, this New Year’s Eve will be different. As we note in the editorial above, playing it safe tonight is wise. Some people will not do that. They will find ways to drink too much, then drive. Local law enforcement agencies will be watching for them.
We encourage police officers, sheriff’s deputies and state troopers in our area to patrol just as they would any New Year’s Eve — and to take drunken drivers straight to jail. There are no acceptable excuses, not even this year, for putting the traveling public at risk.
