YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KSWT, KECY)- The Yuma County Sheriff's Office will be conducting a DUI enforcement detail this weekend.

The Yuma County Sheriff's Office (YCSO) said it will be increasing patrol from November 27 to November 30 in an effort to detect and arrest DUI drivers.

More deputies will be working throughout Yuma County, but they will also be targeting areas with a high rate of DUI related collisions and arrests.

There are many red flags that someone might be driving under the influence.

“Speeding is an indicator of people that are driving and erratic behavior, crossing the median, leaving the roadway," said Sgt. Edgar Guerra.

Even driving too slow can be an indicator someone in drive under the influence. 

The traffic safety campaign is provided through a grant awarded by the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety.

During the holidays, YCSO said it sees more DUI's.

“Increasing these patrols with the funds that we receive, we help decrease the number of DUI related incidents out there,” Guerra said.

YCSO would like to encourage all citizens to be safe this holiday weekend.

If you plan to drink, please use a designated sober driver.
