Ripon police target DUIs

Police will be looking for drunken drivers tonight during a saturation patrol in Ripon.

The goal is to reduce deaths and injuries caused by alcohol-related crashes, Ripon police said.

In a saturation patrol officers drive around with the sole purpose of finding impaired drivers.

The patrol is an effort to educate the public about the dangers of driving under the influence and to encourage designated drivers.

The patrol is funded by a grant from the state Office of Traffic Safety.
