Seattle DUI attorneys and Bellevue DUI attorneys alike may see an influx of phone calls over the coming weeks. That is because Washington State Patrol’s “Target Zero” program has targeted Super Bowl Sunday for another DUI emphasis patrol. Target Zero intends to deploy nearly three dozen officers from the State Patrol, the Seattle Police and the King County Sheriff’s Office onto our King County roadways immediately following the Super Bowl.
The “Target Zero” campaign kicked off in earnest in July 2010; it is a DUI emphasis patrol campaign which involves approximately three dozen law enforcement officers and a group of traffic prosecutors from the Washington State Counties of King, Pierce and Snohomish. The concept of the campaign is to have law enforcement and prosecutors work more cohesively and in unison to create arrest reports and to prosecute DUI cases in Washington State District and Municipal Courts in and around the King, Pierce and Snohomish Counties.
On Super Bowl Sunday law enforcement will be armed with computer-generated maps that show where previous drunk driving fatalities have occurred, where citizens have reported impaired drivers and where there have been a significant number of DUI arrests in and around King County. Additionally, the State Patrol will be in the skies with aircraft equipped with infrared technology that can zoom in on vehicles
