Police Stepping Up Patrols 4th Of July Week
This holiday week, law enforcement will be looking to get drunk and drugged drivers off the roads. Plus there is some incentive to get discounts on ride share services. According to CBS 6, Saratoga County law enforcement will be looking for impaired drivers all summer and they will be out in full force June 29th through July 5th. In a news conference, the Saratoga County sheriff said they will be setting up check points and increasing patrols throughout the county.
There is an added incentive this year too for those who plan ahead. If you need a ride because you are too impaired to drive, you can get a special discount to use ride sharing. DeCresente Distributing Company is offering a discount from Friday June 29th through Sunday July 1st. All Capital Region residents can get $5 off an Uber ride by using the code "July4Uber".
The sheriff hopes that if you are going out this holiday, you have a plan so you can have a safe summer.
