    DUI Enforcement Extra Patrols

    The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office DUI Enforcement Unit will be out
    tonight and tomorrow with extra teams of patrols on the hunt for impaired
    drivers. The additional manpower is thanks in part to a $145,000 grant from
    the Florida Department of Transportation that will support more DUI patrols
    during the "drinking holidays". The grant will also fund a public campaign to
    prevent underage drinking in area high schools.

    On New Year's Eve, the entire DUI Enforcement Squad will be on patrol.

    There is a crucial reason for this enforcement: last year, Hillsborough County
    had the highest number of alcohol-related fatalities in the state - 67. Last
    year there were 4656 DUI violations total given in Hillsborough County -
    that's according to 2011 traffic citation statistics from the Florida Highway
    Safety and Motor Vehicles.
