Extra Sioux Falls officers nab eight drivers under the influence

by

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - The additional 16 officers on patrol Friday night into Saturday morning in Sioux Falls arrested 8 drivers for being under the influence.

     Lieutenant Jerry Miller says they also issued 29 speeding tickets, 13 driving while revoked or suspended tickets and 30 seat belt citations.

     Miller says one of the goals of saturation patrol is to get the message out to not drink and drive.  He says what authorities are looking for, ultimately, is voluntary compliance.  Miller says he would like   to tell you don't drive drunk and you wont.  

     He says on one hand you put a lot of officers on the streets to make a lot of arrests but on the other hand you hope there aren't that many D-W-I arrests

     Miller says the saturation patrol issued a total of 159 citations.

     He says a daytime saturation patrol is planned next Saturday.
