Sheriff's deputies arrest 74 impaired drivers in April

Of that total, four of those were also cited for drug impairment


The Washington County Sheriff's Office arrested 74 impaired drivers in April. Of those, at least four were impaired with drugs. Sheriff's Deputies also issued three Minor in Possession of Alcohol violations.

Many of these DUII arrests were made by Sheriff's Deputies working grant-funded overtime provided by the Oregon Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office, in partnership with ODOT and NHTSA, will conduct enhanced high visibility DUII enforcement patrols the entire month of May looking for impaired drivers. We encourage the public to enjoy their various celebrations responsibly.

The Sheriff's Office advises drivers: "If you're going to consume alcoholic beverages or recreational marijuana, make sure to have a designated sober driver before the celebration begins. The Washington County Sheriff's Office reminds you to drive sober or get pulled over."

Results from the May DUII Safety Patrol results will be posted the beginning of June.
