Authorities looking for DUI violations this holiday season

Published: Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at 16:02 PM.

"We typically boost DUI patrols during the holidays due to the jump in the number of parties and the associated risks," Michele Nicholson, an Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson, said.  

Still, "a large portion of the population does seem to have taken note of the "don't drink and drive" message," she said.

 Despite paying increased attention to drunk driving, DUIs are a year-around concern, due to Okaloosa's active tourist season, Nicholson said.
