Oregon State Police are focusing on keeping impaired drivers off the roads during Memorial Day weekend.
Seven people died in six crashes throughout Oregon during the three-day weekend in 2013, state police said. At least two of the fatal crashes involved people suspected of driving under the influence.
State police and local law enforcement also will be looking for distracted drivers and people not wearing seat belts. The extra patrols are part of the statewide "Click It or Ticket" campaign, which runs through June 1.
There have been more than 500 DUI arrests in Oregon during the last seven Memorial Day weekends, state police said. There were 48 impaired drivers arrested last year.
Never miss a local story.
State police want to remind drivers to get rest before getting behind the wheel, buckle up and not drive under the influence.
