Besides dodging shoppers and the hazards of Black Friday Shopping, be on the alert for Law Enforcement officials--they are looking for people drinking and driving.

Now through January 2,  all law enforcement officials in Benton and Franklin County are staging DUI  holiday emphasis patrols.  Last year 145 people got popped for drinking and driving,  DON'T be one of them!   Officers will be especially targeting evening hours, looking for motorists driving erratically, too fast, or even too slow.   So don't be fiddling with the cell phone either,   distracted driving can look just like impaired driving.  Be Smart and use a designated driver!
