    “Our goals are to diminish the impaired driving problem by increasing the opportunity to detect, apprehend, and deter the impaired driver by selective enforcement of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and to heighten the public awareness to the dangers of driving while under the influence of alcohol, chemical or controlled substances,” Police Lieutenant Kenneth Lamb from JSO’s Specialized Traffic Enforcement Unit said in the news release.

    JSO also issued 30 traffic citations and seized 120 grams of marijuana.
