ELKHART — The Elkhart County Traffic Safety Partnership is stepping up efforts to catch impaired drivers this Memorial Day weekend.

The Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department will conduct DUI high-visibility enforcement zones on Friday and Saturday nights.

“Usually they will be areas with a high number of crashes or a high number of intoxicated drivers,” said Lt. Travis Adamson.

The zones are part of the state’s “Click it or Ticket” campaign, which occurs every year around the Memorial Day holiday, Adamson said.

The sheriff’s department will be conducting enforcement zones northeast of the Elkhart City limits from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Friday night, May 24 and north of the city limits from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday night, May 25.
