They Said They Saw Lots of Taxis

Overland Park police officers conducted a DUI Saturation Patrol on Saturday, March 16th, 2013. The DUI Saturation Patrol was conducted with the intent to reduce alcohol related auto accidents and discourage impaired driving. 

Officers who were working that night made several comments that there were a lot of taxis moving about.  I take this to be a sign that people were making responsible decisions and that the message that driving impaired is not a safe or socially acceptable decision.

The DUI Saturation Patrol was enforced between 10:00 PM and 2:00 AM.

The following are the statistical results:
2 - DUI Arrests
2 - Drivers Tested for DUI
1 - Speeding
1 - Suspended Driver’s License
3 - Right/Left Turn Violations
1 - Red Light Violation
2 - Improper Turn Violations
1 - Driver’s License Violation
6 - Other Traffic Violations
1 - No Insurance Violation
1 - Other Arrest
20 - Total vehicles stopped
