Whether it is a post-Hermine party or a Labor Day celebration, be safe on the roads this Labor Day Weekend. The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office and other local law enforcement agencies will be watching for impaired drivers through their holiday weekend DUI Wolfpack detail.
According to ClearwaterPatch.com, the countywide operation kicks off tonight at 7 p.m. In addition to the sheriff’s office, the Clearwater, Belleair, Gulfport, Indian Shores, Largo, Pinellas Park, St. Petersburg, Tarpon Springs and Treasure Island police departments are taking part in making sure that impaired drivers are not putting others at risk of a deadly car accident.
Where they will be has not yet been revealed. The sheriff’s office said the operation will target some of the county’s most highly traveled roads and promises law enforcement officers will “maintain a proactive profile over the Labor Day holiday.”
I know drivers should not have the fear of the DUI Wolfpack out to deter them from driving drunk, but if it works, I’m all for it. There are so many other ways to travel the roads without having to drive impaired. Utilize Uber, Lyft or a regular taxi service. Also, AAA is offering its free Tow 2 Go program throughout the holiday weekend to members AND non-members of AAA.
Celebrate this Labor Day weekend with friends and family. Just do it safely and watch out for those who don’t.
