State Patrol rolls out extra DUI patrols for Octoberfest
September 30, 2016



(LEAVENWORTH, WA.) -- This month is a big tourist month for the Bavarian themed town of Leavenworth, Washington due to the annual Octoberfest celebration there.

The festival rolls out in three phases. It starts Sept. 30 and runs to October 1st and then runs 10/7-10/8 and 10/14-10/15.

The Washington State Patrol (WSP) reminds all Oktoberfest attendees to have fun, but to be responsible in the driving department.

The WSP will have extra patrols out during Oktoberfest."Our goal is to prevent serious injury or fatal collisions from occurring over the three weekend event Troopers will be proactive in our efforts to prevent these tragic events from occurring," said a statement issued by the patrol which also reminds everyone to arrange for a designated driver prior to arriving.

Or take a taxi home if you've been drinking. As part of the additional patrols for DUI drivers, the WSP is also bringing out the Mobile Impaired Driving Unit (MIDU). 

The MIDU is a self-contained 37 foot motorhome that travels across the state to support all Law Enforcement during Driving Under the Influence emphasis patrols. It's equipped with three breath test instruments and two holding cells to efficiently process impaired drivers, which helps Troopers quickly return to patrol.

The patrol statement says, "If you are impaired by alcohol or drugs, you will be arrested for DUI.  If you are arrested for DUI, you could face up to one year in jail and up to a $5,000 fine.  If you see a driver you believe to be impaired, please call 911 with the vehicle’s description, direction of travel and license plate number if possible."

And the tag line is: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
