FHP’s Troop E has teamed up with local and county law enforcement this summer to target DUI offenders with stepped up enforcement efforts to ensure motorists comply with Florida’s DUI laws.
The first of several scheduled operations was held May 16 on the Macarthur Causeway that connects the City of Miami to Miami Beach. Over 75 troopers, deputies and police officers manned a DUI checkpoint, saturating the area on motorcycles and in patrol cars.
During the first operation, 23 people were arrested for DUI. In addition, 303 traffic tickets were issued for violations ranging from faulty equipment and driving while license suspended. Keep up the good work FHP!
