DUI Wolf Pack

December 30th, 2009 by flanews

Florida Highway Patrolmen will be hunting for drunk drivers this holiday weekend in packs.

Theyre asking people who ring in 2010 with alcohol to designate a driver or find a cab. For those who dont the patrolmen will be traveling in DUI Wolf Packs blanketing areas know to have intoxicated drivers. FHP Captain Mark Welch says the risk isnt worth it.

Theres an awful lot at risk. If you get involved in a crash people can be hurt, people can be killed by your bad decision to drive a car while under the influence of alcohol. At a minimum you can be arrested, you car gets towed, you have to pay court costs, you have to pay reinstatement fees for your drivers license. Its just not worth it, said Welch.

Patrolmen wont just be out on New Years. They plan to have an increased presents all weekend long.
