DUI patrols planned for Friday night in SLO

San Luis Obispo police will be on the lookout for alcohol- and drug-impaired drivers this Friday, the department said in a news release.

The “DUI saturation patrols” will last from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. in “areas with high frequencies of DUI collisions and/or arrests,” the department said.

Officers will be watching for signs of alcohol or drug impairment.

Funding for the operation was provided to the department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
