On Saturday, the Hays Police Department will be conducting DUI saturation patrols in an effort to deter and decrease the number of impaired and intoxicated drivers on the street.

The purpose of the program is to saturate the city with roving police officers who continually monitor vehicular traffic for signs of impaired driving. Officers will place an emphasis on speeding, safety belt and alcohol-related violations.

The Hays Police Department has a zero-tolerance policy on drunk driving. People are encouraged to call Safe Ride at (785) 621-2580 or have a designated driver to help get home safely.

The event is being conducted in accordance with the Kansas Department of Transportation Impaired Driving Deterrence Program.
