EUGENE, Ore. -- Eugene police are planning to increase DUII patrols over Memorial Day weekend and the remainder of the month.

Police say they want to address the issue of DUII driving and ensure enough officers are available to identify, stop and process impaired drivers.

Staffing for the patrols primarily comes from state grants.

Police urge drivers to be safe, responsible and always have a plan to get home safely. Wearing your seat belt is the best defense against impaired drivers.
