To help stop that trend, police are stepping up patrols over the next few weeks.

A total of 20 patrol cars will also display the MADD red ribbon in honor of victims and survivors.

“If you know you’re unable to operate your vehicle, take Uber, take a taxi, take a ride share; take anything but getting behind the wheel,” said a man who lost his son by an impaired driver.
