(SALEM, Ore. ) - The Marion County Sheriff's Office will be adding extra patrols over the 4th of July weekend thanks to grants made possible thru the Oregon State Sheriff's Association.

The extra patrols will be focusing on detecting and arresting impaired drivers.

With the warm weather and the holiday weekend comes the increased usage of our roadways to access our waterways, parks and rural camping areas. The Sheriff's Office wants to remind motorists that it is all of our responsibility to drive safe and sober.

If you are drinking and you must drive a few simple steps can help you avoid a crash or a trip to jail.

* Volunteer or designate your sober driver before leaving home.

* If you don't have a designated driver, ask a sober friend for a ride home; call a cab, friend or family member to come and get you.

* Never let a friend leave your sight if you think they are about to drive while impaired.

And finally please report any possible intoxicated drivers to your local law enforcement agency. The Sheriff's Office can be reached at 503-588-5032 or 911 in an emergency.
