Sarasota News Leader May 24, 2013 Page 60 SHERIFF'S OFFICE TO RAMP UP TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office will use enhanced traffic enforcement over the Memorial Day weekend to keep streets safe and take impaired drivers off the road, the office has announced. Deputies will use "saturation patrols" over the Memorial Day holiday weekend to look for traffic offenses, motorists driving without a license, those with warrants and drunk drivers. Instead of setting up what is known as a DUI checkpoint, a number of Patrol and Traffic deputies will work targeted zones at the same time and monitor the activity of motorists, a news release says. "These saturation patrols will take place in different areas of the county," it adds. "Aggressive drivers and people who get behind the wheel while impaired put themselves and others at risk," said Sheriff Tom Knight in the release. "We want citizens and visitors to know we are working diligently to ensure their safety on Sarasota County roads." % Sheriff Tom Knight/Contributed photo Enter To Win A New iPad When our "Likes" on Facebook reach 1,000, we will randomly select one of our subscribers to receive a new iPad. 1 Click to Subscribe 2 Then Like Us On Facebook The contest concludes when The Sarasota News Leader achieves 1,000 "Likes" on Facebook, One winner will be selected at random from among subscribers.
