Benton County Sheriff's conducts extra DUII Saturation during Thanksgiving/Civil War football weekend.
The Benton County Sheriff's Office will be participating in extra DUII saturation patrol and enforcement surrounding the Thanksgiving and Civil War football weekend this year. The extra patrol will take place between November 27, through November 29, 2014. There will be extra patrol targeting individuals who choose to drive under the influence of intoxicants and therefore endanger themselves and others on our roadways. The Benton County Sheriff's Office already actively patrols for these crimes, but this is extra enforcement added to target this dangerous offense.
Driver impairment and speeding are the most common causes of injury crashes. Oregon's DUII enforcement program is committed to reducing the amount of crashes and impaired drivers on our roadways by keeping them off the roadway and arresting them when they choose to drive.
