May 24, 2017 -- Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies, in partnership with the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), will be providing extra patrols on the road to enhance safety over Memorial Day weekend.

In addition to extra patrols over the holiday weekend focused on impaired driving, deputies will also be looking for drivers that are speeding, following too closely, and distracted drivers using mobile communication devices. The results of the enhanced patrol will be provided after the holiday weekend.

During holiday weekends, Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies respond to numerous traffic-related incidents that could have been avoided. Deputies are reminding drivers to designate a sober driver, slow down, avoid distractions, and allow adequate following distances.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office would like everyone to have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend. Please remember to be safe and considerate while enjoying the holiday.
