Valentines Day DUII

Lincoln City Police will be increasing their presence this Valentine’s Day weekend, utilizing grant funds to be on the lookout for impaired drivers.

Enforcement grants will be used to put extra patrol units on the streets of Lincoln City specifically tasked with seeking out drivers under the influence and removing them from the roadways.

Police officials say the safety of citizens is of “paramount concern” and they want to save lives.

“Our goal is simple — to save lives. Drunk driving is simply not worth the risk. If you drive drunk, you will be arrested.”

DUII enforcement grant funds were last used over the Christmas and New Year’s Holidays. Those operations did not yield any DUII arrests, however, police say COVID-19 restrictions in place at the time may have had an impact on the results.

The grant funds are made possible through Oregon Impact and the Oregon Department of Transportation.

  1. Someone try to tell me that being run down and killed by a drunk
    is different than being run down and killed by someone who blows through
    a stoplight that isn’t working. I’m finding this a little difficult, given what I was told when I called about the multitudes of cars running what were at the time legally required four way stops. “Not enough manpower”, actually, that statement sounds a little sexist…
