Vancouver, Wash. --On June 16 and 17, 2017, thanks to a grant from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, law enforcement from both Clark and Cowlitz County will have additional officers enforcing DUI laws in an effort to keep drunk, drugged and high drivers off the road. This is the first time law enforcement agencies in both counties have coordinated a DUI emphasis. Participating agencies in Clark County include the Vancouver, Battle Ground and Washougal Police Departments. Participating agencies in Cowlitz County include the Woodland, Longview, and Kalama Police Departments and the Cowlitz County Sheriff's Office. Officers, who are also drug recognition experts, will be among those conducting these increased DUI patrols.

If you or someone you care about will be consuming intoxicants, please make sure to select a sober designated driver, or use mass transit, taxis, or a rideshare service to get around town. As a reminder, Uber offers first time users a special coupon code for $25 toward their first trip. Sign up for the Uber coupon code RIDEHOMEVANC at

If you are driving and see a suspected impaired driver, call 911.
