To address the issue of DUII driving and to ensure enough officers are available to identify, stop and process impaired drivers, DUII patrols will be staffed above and beyond the normal strength for this weekend and throughout the month of May. These patrols are staffed primarily with the help of funding from state grants.
Please remember that there is expected to be a significant increase in the amount of people on the roadway and in Eugene this weekend for the Eugene Marathon. When traveling, give yourself a considerable amount of time to get where you need to be and always be considerate of other drivers on the road.
If you plan to celebrate in any events, have a designated driver and never leave home without a plan to get back safely!
