DUI Patrols

Local law enforcement is pulling double duty this weekend as two operations are underway, one for drunk drivers, the other for spring breakers.

The shoulders of Interstate 10 look more like parking garages for local law enforcement, except these vehicles are constantly on the move.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers say they've been pulling over more than 20 cars an hour as part of “operation spring break.”

In this effort, law-breaking motorists are caught from above. Just a few miles west, Tallahassee police are tracking motorists via laser, and although it’s an interstate, locals are often targeted.

Just as “operation spring break” ends Friday night a saturated patrol of five local law enforcement agencies kicks in to derail drunk drivers.

Increased DUI patrols begin Friday night at 11 p.m. and will continue throughout the weekend.
