ORIGINAL:

Law enforcement all over the state will be stepping up patrols to crackdown on DUIs over the holiday weekend.

Unified Police will have a checkpoint set up in the Salt Lake Valley starting at 9 p.m. on Friday.

On Sunday at midnight Utah’s DUI laws will become the strictest in the nation. The blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit will drop from 0.08 to 0.05 in our state.

With smart ride options available, like public transportation and ridesharing, there is no excuse for anyone to drive impaired. 

Happy new year! Make sure to Enjoy Utah Responsibly.
