FAIRBANKS — Alaska State Troopers are moving into the second phase of a ramped-up effort to patrol for drunken
drivers during the holiday season.
The holiday DUI enforcement effort will continue through Jan. 1, along with work to watch for speeding, aggressive driving, distracted driving and motorists not wearing their seatbelts, according to a troopers press release.
The first part of the campaign, from Dec. 12-20, resulted in 14 DUI arrests and 262 citations issued. Those citations included 53 speeding tickets and 11 citations for seatbelt violations.
Funding for the enhanced enforcement effort were provided in part by grants distributed through the Alaska Highway Safety Office.
