The Wakulla County Sheriff's Office will have extra law enforcement working on New Year's Eve to track down drunk drivers.

The traffic and road patrol units will be out looking for intoxicated and aggressive drivers in an effort to protect drivers during the holiday period. The sheriff's office will provide an additional six patrol units to cover the entire county.

Captain Steven Ganey from the Wakulla County Sheriff's Office says,
"If you're going to go out and drink, have a designated driver. And as far as aggressive drivers we're gonna be looking for aggressive drivers. We're gonna have all of our traffic units out, and our road patrols are gonna be beefed up."

Last year on New Year's Eve, the Wakulla County Sheriff Department's special patrol responded to four traffic crashes and made one DUI arrest.
