WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — According to a news release, the Wilmington Police Department Traffic Unit, along with other Governors Highway Safety Program partner agencies, plan to “saturate the city of Wilmington” with traffic officers over the holiday weekend.
Officers will be on the lookout for unsafe drivers, particularly those driving under the influence of alcohol, prescription medication, and drugs.
The release says the effort will be city-wide and not limited to any one particular area.
The Department of Health and Human Services will have their Booze It and Lose It bus available at the Wilmington Police Department. This will allow officers to have four breath test instruments available instead of just one.
The event is just one of many law enforcement will be conducting the last weekend of 2012.
