Police announce "DUI Saturation Patrol" for Friday



This is sorta a no-brainer, and unlike those DUI roadblocks that get some folks upset, but still worth mentioning.

The Missoula Police Department and Montana Highway Patrol will conduct a "DUI Saturation Patrol" this weekend in an effort to "combat impaired driving." The patrols will begin early Friday night and run until Saturday morning "with special emphasis on bars and nightclubs in the Missoula area."

So, basically, they're preparing for Homecoming.

Expect to see additional officers in addition to the regular early and late night shifts. The release mentions no scheduled checkpoints.
