(La Porte County, IN) - Police are cracking down more on drinking and driving right now because of the holidays. La Porte County Sheriff John Boyd has extra patrols out until after the New Year.
Boyd said the focus is on drivers exhibiting symptoms of being impaired along with aggressive forms of driving like speeding. Drivers operating a vehicle in such a fashion are sometimes impaired by alcohol or drugs.
“We continue to go out and find those aggressive drivers and impaired drivers and hold them accountable,” he said.
Over the weekend, several drivers stopped for speeding by sheriff’s deputies were arrested for operating while intoxicated.
